It may have created a hidden system file.
Open explorer and then right click on each of the main folders on the left side. If you see a folder that is absolouty huge, then that would be a good place to start looking.

You will need to unhide hidden and system files as well.
This will depend on your OS so ..
For Vista:

  1. Open Explorer
  2. At the top of the page select Organise
  3. Select Folder & Search Options
  4. Select View
  5. In the Hidden & Search options, tick "Show hidden files and folders"
  6. Hit Apply, then up the top "Apply to all Folders"
For XP
  1. Open Explorer
  2. Select Tools /Folder Options/ View
  3. Then it's the same process as above.
Hope that helps.

Not enough memory


If you have low memory (RAM) then install more RAM.
If you have low memory (hard disk space) the delete unwanted data files and uninstall unwanted programs.
ALSO
Carry out HARD DISK MAINTENANCE
Hard disk maintenance should be carried once a month to make your computer run efficiently. This removes redundant and temporary files, recovers disk space and speed up hard disk access. Disk Cleanup should be done first - Click My Computer - then right click on the C drive then click Properties, then click Disk Cleanup - let it examine the C drive then it will calculate the amount of disk space it will recover, tick all the boxes to recover the maximum disk space and then Click OK and then Yes to perform these actions. If you have a D drive then repeat these steps on this drive too. Next the C drive needs to be Defrag. This process converts fragmented files into continuous files and this speeds up disk access and makes the hard disk not work as hard. Click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Disk Defragmenter - click to highlight the C drive and click Analyse - then click Defragment. When this is completed repeat these steps for the D Drive if you have a D drive. Disk Cleanup and Defrag can take a long time to complete, especially if these tasks have not been for a long time.

Try a piece of software called "Disk Inventory X"

How many directory deep is the file going that you are trying to save? I believe the maximum NTFS file (location + name) of file length can not exceed 256 characters total.

Example: C:\user\documents\file.exe is OK

But: C:\user\documents\folder\folder\folder\folder\folder\this folder name 230 charicters long\file.exe BAD

Not enough space to back up?


sure..the back ups are compressed files, usually, and though it appears to be a small file, the external drive will allocate the space that it needs. Mac's won't put a file anywhere that there is not enough room. PC's will slice it and spread it around, of course.
I recommend you off load some of those backups to DVD's and keep them for a month or so.
Or get more disk space.
