Why there is "Low Disk Space" warning?

18 New Member
- Windows created the low disk space warning to alert computer users when their hard drive is running low on available disk space. Then you will see on a fairly regular basis as your hard drive fills up is the Low Disk Space warning in SBS Server: "You are running out of disk space on Local Disk [drive]. To free space on this drive by deleting old or unnecessary files, click here."
- Sometimes, you may just need to ignore or disable your Windows low disk space in SBS Server. But it is not so simple when the problem is on the C: drive. In order for your computer system to operate properly it needs a minimum amount of available disk space on the system drive.
- The 200 MB threshold is the line that Windows has drawn for optimal performance. Once you fall below this threshold your system automatically takes actions to maintain minimum performance capabilities.
- When your available disk space falls under 80 MB, Windows SBS Server delivers a stronger warning message, and then it starts to free up drive space by deleting previous System Restore points. This reduces the number of restore points you can select to restore your computer if the hard drive is impaired or corrupted.
- The final phase of self preservation comes when your drive falls under 50 MB of available disk space. When this occurs an urgent warning message is delivered every four minutes, until the user takes actions to free up disk space. If you ignore this warning, then Windows will purge the ALL System Restore points, and suspend the System Restore function. System Restore will not be reactivated until 200MB of disk space becomes available on the system drive.

I keep getting the following error message when I run a serie of SQL commands: Server: Msg 9002, Level 17, State 6, Line 15 The log file for database 'tempdb' is full. Back up the transaction log for the database to free up some log space. I have tried "dump transaction tempdb with no_log" right before I run the SQL command. But that doesn't help.

On page 89 of Stroustrup's book "The C++ Programming Language" 3rd Ed. He says that multidimensional arrays are best avoided outside low-level code. What precisely does he mean by low-level code? That is fairly relative terminology. Is he saying that the use of multidimensional arrays in C++ are not desirable? That doesn't seem right to me.

I have a strange problem that has reared its ugly head in the last few weeks. I have the option "Compact on Close" (Tools, Options, General tab) enabled on my development machine. I did this because every time I worked on my app it just grew and grew. What started out as a 14Meg file kept growing into a monster of over 90 Megs! System info: Windows XP Pro with SP1

I just ran into this problem also. (undocumented exception thrown when Streamwriter is handed a buffer with wierd characters in it). I was also able to get around it by specifying utf8 as the encoding for Streamwriter. (Thank you Amy L!) But I have some questions: 1- Isn't utf8 supposed to be the default mode for streamwriter? If so why does specifying the default fix the problem?

I'm using Win2K3 Enterprise edition with the latest .NET framework installed. I have this problem with getting "out of disk space" errors. It doesn't happen all the time but it does happen.

I have a server which hosts a fair amount of websites, and over the last couple of weeks I have been getting the error "Not enough space on temporary disk" on ASP.Net pages. The error doesn't always appear, but when it does it seems to be there for good until I restart the web services. I'm using OleDb and Access databases. The odd thing about all this is that the error appears on ASP.Net pages, but not on old ASP pages - despite the...

Hi All, I would like to write a windows service that will "Check" any problems on my computer. For exemple, I would like to pop up a windows if my Hard drive is low in "space" (maybe 5 % free space).

When is it appropriate to use "volatile" keyword?
