SQL 2008 Express capacity limit

infos-split used Ask the Experts™
I have a problem with a database on SQL 2008 Express. SQL server is generating an error after trying to add any data in the database
 ' ... because the 'PRIMARY' filegroup is full. Create disk space by deleting unneeded files, dropping objects in the filegroup, adding additional files to the filegroup, or setting autogrowth on for existing files in the filegroup' .

Database is 3.94 GB of size and filesystem on a disk is NTFS.
I doubt the version of SQL 2008 Express.
This is what I get from server after 'select @@version'.

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (RTM) - 10.0.1600.22 (Intel X86)

Is this version with 4 GB limit ? I've heard that the limit of database on SQL 2008 Express is 10 GB.  Am I right or there is something else ?
