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.

I dont think the scanner can scan upside down. The image must be rotated after the scan. Any OCR software has confusion between 'L' & '7', S & 5, I & l (capital I and small L) and the OCR software rotates the drawing, based on initial perception. Just scan a set of Documents that were previously rotated while converting to PDF, as a JPG or TIFF file and check if the images are rotated.
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.
The scanner allows you to scan in batches and you can select a convenient name for a batch. If you start the first batch as 'A', then the first image will be 'A001.tif' , second as 'A002.tif' etc. If the next batch is 'B', then it will be, B001.tif, B002.tif etc.
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.
Ok I am not sure why ya scanner won't save in JPEG .. however converting the files to JPEG is relitively "Simple". After saving the Scanned picture.. Open it up in say MS Paint, Painshop etc, then simply choose "Save As.." from the File Menu, and save it as a NEW image file this time with a JPEG extension. IE: origional... picture.png or picture.bmp ... save as ...picture.jpg .. ya should be good to go. :)
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.
