It could be because of system reservation for page memory and system restore information. You can use CCleaner to clean up to get more free space.

Hi Donna. The properties of your hard drive shown when you open Computer (My Computer in Windows XP) help you to see your used and free space. Even though your hard drive has a capacity of 160 GB, useable space is always less because the operating systems were designed to allocate a percentage of the total to be used for various operations necessary for smooth sailing. Right clicking the hard drive icon and selecting properties opens to you tools used to keep your hard drive healthy along with information regarding the hard drives % of use. Try it out if you haven't already. Good Day

The problem you are talking about is most probably of the virus infection. Try to format your pen drive in your system and you can restore back your pen drive.

Fuji frontier 550 shows error "disk free space limit reached" in error log info. but despite doing disk defragment and disk clean-up, still no prints or orders are coming out.


Your hard Drive is full.

Go to My Computer
Right Click the C:/ and go to properties
It will then show you how much Disk space is used and that is free.

You need to uninstall some old programs you dont use anymore. If you are using Windows XP go to your Control Panel and then Add or Remove Programs
Uninstall the programs you dont want.

Now you should have enough space to install your printer software.

Apart from the obvious that the printer might be faulty, have you tried updating the driver software on the pc?

What operating system are you running? Is it Windows XP? Another thing is to check the disk space on the pc. If there is no spooling space, it might cause this. If Windows XP, go to start button, my computer and right mouse click the hard drive symbol and select properties. That wll show you how much free space there is. If there is little or no free space, you have to delete some files Eg pictures or things you might no longer need. Also try to test the printer on another pc if you can. That way you can tell if it's a printer or pc related fault. Rgds,
