low space error

Postby newsraider » Fri May 31, 2013 1:50 pm

i keep getting a low space error even though i have plenty of space. it had been running great for a while until this popped up.

i did a search and saw someone else had this problem also. i moved the data folder but still get the same error. i didnt know if there would be something different i should try on linux?

is there a folder i should try to clear?

What version are you using? 6.42 and newer the space error automatically clears when free space opens up. That's because windows occasionally lies about how much free space a disk has.

If you look at the status bar at the bottom, how much free space is it showing?

i always forget which one is the free space so i just uploaded the pic.

the way i have it setup is with newsbin on my main ssd and i have it download the files to another hd. my ssd has 50 gigs open and my sata 2nd drive has 650gigs open.

anyway we can make newsbin fly blind? :D no checks of the remaining space.

I see one that says "63 MB". That's pretty much out of space. Pretty sure that's the data folder. 6th one in from the left.

i got it figured out 8)

looks like when wine software updated it messed up the drive mapping. i forgot it updated a few days back.

open terminal - winecfg

go to drives and then select the letter z. browse to your hdd you want to save the files too. should fix it.
