This disk is full on this drive

Experts,
I am trying to save a word document receiving the following error:

The disk is full on this drive or save the document to another disk
Try one of the following:
Close any unneeded documents, program and windows (this I have done)
Save the document on another disk (this I have tried.)

Presumably you have opened a document, edited it, and now can't save it, because of this message.

It may be corrupt. This can sometimes be fixed by copying the open document, and pasting to a new blank document.

No document was saveable. I did a System Restore and problem gone. If that failed I'd then move to reinstalling Word

Sorry. I have been away watching the Last Night of the Proms. Luckily you weren't waiting for me, but it is always a good idea to indicate if it is the one document, or many.

I don't know what a System Restore is on a PC, though I did understand it for a Honeywell/Bull Series 64/GCOS7 mainframe in the 70s and 80s.

Windows allows you to restore you system is a previous point in time by creating restore points. I simply chose the last know point and restored the system from there. Any updates after the retore would have to be reinstalled.
Funny, but not many people even knew Honeywell was in the computer business. It kind of ages us.
