What are you doing when this occurs? Are you opening Access, or are you opening an Access database?

Try repair or reinstall of Access/Office - I'd bet something has become de-registered. Also be sure that you've installed all service packs/updates.

Might also insure that Windows is fully up to date.

Okay ... are you sure that you have enough space on the destination drive, as the error mentions?

I can create a text file in that network folder
there is pletty of GIGs available
I tried the VB command string but it gives the same error during the process
if I logon as a different user it works fine


one thing that I notice abbout my error is the mine endes with (-1201). The others have a different number.

Then you have a corrupt user profile. I'm not aware of any way to recover that, so you'll have to recreate that user profile.
