Hello,

I have a WSS 3.0 WFE server running a number of site collections. Recently, I started to have problem when trying to upload files. It is the same kind of problem on different sites.

1). When tried in IE, the error says:
Go back to site
Error      
Unable to complete this operation.  Please contact your administrator.
Troubleshoot issues with Windows SharePoint Services.

2). I tried open the document library in Windows Explorer, and copy and paste the files over, i got an error with Error 0x80070021. see attached.

3). I tried reboot my laptop, I tried firefox, i tried that email the files to other people, and got the same error.

4). it happens with Word, Excel, Pdf

5). it happens with different document libraries on different site.

any suggestions?

thanks

Joseph

I know it sounds silly, but reinstall/repair office on your laptop.

i found out the reason, the disk ran out of space. the error code that microsoft provided doesn't make any sense at all in this case.

thanks

I thought I'd write this up for anyone who has a request to create an anonymous whistle-blower-type submission form created using SharePoint 2010 (this would probably work the same for 2013). It's not 100% fool-proof but it's as close as you can get…
