Question about Archos Jukebox Recorder MP3 Player

Not enough free space

My Archos Recorder 20 displays the message "Not enough free space on hard drive" - but i have deleted most of the files - so there is plenty of space available. Looks like something won't reset to allow the box to recognise the free space available. Any suggestions?

Sounds like you are connecting your Archos to either a Mac or a Linux box. When you place items in trash they're actually placed in a hidden .trash folder on the Archos's internal drive and so still take up space.
Start by reconnecting the device to your computer and when it appears on your desktop try emptying your trash can/recycle bin, this will empty all .trash folders including the one on the Archos.
If you're using a Mac you may also want to use a 'clean eject' app such as FinderCleaner to remove all the Apple system files from your Archos. Don't worry the only effect this has is to slow reconnection down by 1 or 2 seconds but it helps prevent problems like this and prevent the device from getting confused by Apple system files.

SAYS HITACHI DRIVE IS FULL


Maybe... you need to free up.... space..? (Sorry, could not resist...)

That is, try to delete files or empty the virtual Trash Bin. If you are certain that there should be enough free space, try a filesystem check. In windows, open the windows explorer (NOT internet-explorer), right-click on the drive-letter, choose properties->tools. There is something like "check for errors". (this depends on version and language of the OS).

I had a program that couldn't cope with too much free space. Almost filling up the drive with some random files made the program work. Ok, this was 20 years ago.

Pop up box says no available space o GB?


Click Start, then Computer. If it shows no (or very little) free space on C:, you are truly out of room and need to delete or move some files to another hard drive (external hard drives are good for this). To operate efficiently, a good rule of thumb is to have at least 20% of your hard drive free.

I cannot access the data on my hard drive. I keep getting an error message saying "Not enough space" when I try to open it in the "My Computer" window. Thanks.


Right click on "My Computer"
Click Manage
Click Storage
Click Disk Management
Look at your "C" drive.
Look at Free Space and %Free
If you have no room left, you have major problems.
You need to delete a bunch of files.
Start by deleting all your Temporary Files.
After you delete enough to make a difference, run Defrag.

Currently my 500 GB WD External Drive has 353GB as free space. But when I try and add a 6GB file I get the following message "Error Copying File or Folder Cannot copy filename: There is not enough free...


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 on drive but there is!?!?


dear,

you need to install a software called "Advance system Care 3.0". its amazing and will sweep and manage the unnecessary data from the hard and will allow you to do as you want...
it has two major catagory in the software,
1. Maintenance Window
2. Diagnostic System

It will automatically start the scanning and will ask you to fix the problem..
It contains alot, in Utilities option.. hope u will enjoy and it will fix the issue..

its the basic correction, but if it doesn't work then try to delete some data and see if the space increases, after that scan it again..

goodluck...

Not enough memory ALL THE TIME!!


how big is the drive?
how much space do you have free?
how big is your paging/virtual memory file?
how big is your recycle bin?
all of these take space too.
you will need approx 20% of drive space free if it has a system installed on it.
i think you may need a bigger drive or another one for files etc so the system can run unobstructed.

Not enough free disk space message


Double check for the correct path to where you are saving the pictures. Maybe the software is trying to save to a CD-ROM or other drive.

Deleting files


If you've got it connected to your computer, you can do the same things that you would with any connected hard drive. In this case you should be able to delete files and then empty the recycle bin.

After that, go to My Computer and right click the icon for your Jukebox and select Properties. There you should be able to use Disk Cleanup to purge old system files, etc.
