First of all I assume that we are dealing with a windows computer. Please ignore the below if I am wrong here.
Not enough space typically indicates that there is not enough space on the hard disk ( or other storage media) to store (save) the data the system is trying to save. So,, what, I think , you need to do is to check how much space is available on the storage destination. This is how you can do it.
Step 1.Open the windows explorer. Manually locate all the unwanted files on the C drive that can be removed and delete them. You need to remove these files from the "Recycle bin " to get them removed from the C drive completely.
One very common issue that happens is that a lot of photos / images gets stored in the C drive. If this is the case, move them ( or copy them and delete them from the C drive) to an external drive to create space in the C drive.
Step 2. Right click on the "C" drive and select "properties".
This will open up a small window that will show the total space on the disk , used up space and the available space.
There are a number of reasons why the disk space can be used up like temporary files, old log files, old installation files , memory dumps etc.
You can select the option of "Disk cleanup" available in the information window that pops up in step 2 above.
The machine will now calculate the amount of space that can be recovered by cleaning up unwanted files stored in the disk. Once this is done, you can go ahead and perform a cleanup.
One the cleanup is finished, check how much space is now available.It should be more than in step 2 earlier.
Step 3. Once all the cleanup is completed, the next thing that can be done is "Defragmenting" of the disk. The defragment option can be found under the "Tools" menu in the properties window of C drive. Select this and perform the defrag operation. If your disk is heavily fragmented, this could take some time. But be patient and get that done.
Once done, you can schedule defragmentation to automatically run periodically so that the disk remain with 0% fragmentation.
Please try these. .I truly trust this will help you.
