The file size depends upon B&W or Color, the Format and the System performance. If you are scanning in color, try JPG format as it is lesser in size. TIF file will be huge as compared to JPG, though there is a drop with JPG, it is easily manageable. If B&W go for TIFF compressed instead of uncompressed TIFF.
Check if you have enough disk space in your computer. Do a defrag on you hard disk.

Are you sure this is your question?
Connect the scanner, power on the comp and install the device driver, when asked for. Install scanning software that comes with the scanner and readu you are.
Depending upon the document, select color/grey/mono settings. B&W is generally TIF and Color/Grey is JPG format, however other formats are possible.
Most of the time a scanner by default, will scan a document in a tif or other image file format. That means that the scanned image is actually very similar to a photograph. In order to edit the text, you first have to convert the image using something that's called OCR software. OCR is a process that the software uses to look at a scanned document image and determine what characters are on the page. It's not always very accurate but that depends on the quality of the scan and on the OCR software being used. You must have received some sort of scanning software with the scanner. Hopefully it containes some sort of OCR software. Some scanners will save you this extra image manipulation by having a setting that allows you to scan directly to a word document. Usually in that configuration, the OCR software automatically knows to convert the scanned document image in order to automate the process. But either way, you first have to install the manufacturer's software. Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
What it's telling you is that the "filename" that the scanner/software package is trying to use to save the document being scanned to your hard drive has reached it's limit in the amount of times that it can be incremented by "1". In other words every time you scan a document it is saved to a directory or folder on your PC under a filename which is probably assigned by default. This filename has a "suffix" which is also assigned by the scanner/software eg. filename01.tif (or jpg, etc) filename02.tif filename03.tif and so on. Either I'm way off base or you must have scanned a whole bunch of documents using this naming convention because the scanner/software has run out of numbers that it can affix to each individual file. What you need to do is either 1. Change the folder that you are saving the documents to or 2. Change the pre-suffix filename in order to retain individuality.
Grey as you know is different shades of black. Uncompressed TIF can store this information. Compressed TIFF is not designed for this. Compressed TIFF is for blck & white only. Try JPG option. JPG can compress Color & Grey. For pure black & white chose TIFF compression.
