Error - Not Enough Free Space To Store Temporary Installation Files

Not enough free space error when i have 190 gig free on drive c? When upgrading from vista hp 64 bit to win 7 hp 64 bit, following the "checking compatibility" function of the upgrade process i get the following error message:

There is not enough free space to store temporary windows installation files. Try using disk cleanup, uninstall old programs, or move files to an external location such as a cd, dvd, or external hard drive.

I have done that, moved all pics, music, uninstalled itunes and done everything the program recommended. My c drive is 286 gig and it has 190 gig of free space. Clearly, there is plenty of room. So what's up with this error message?

Error Message - There Is Not Enough Free Space To Store Temporary

I'm trying to upgrade from vista home premium to windows 7 home premium and get the following error message:

"There is not enough free space to store temporary windows installation files. Try using disk cleanup, uninstall old programs, or move files to an external location such as a cd, dvd, or external hard drive. "

However, my hard drive has 91 gb free out of a total of 149 gb. I have no partitions and so this is the only hard drive that windows can be installed on. I also have 3 gb ram. Anyone have any thoughts on what i can do?

Enough Free Disk Space Issue Using Easy Transfer

Why does easy transfer say i don't have enough disk space when i'm trying to transfer 141gb to a hard drive with 585gb of available space? I just purchased an hp pavilion 6347c with windows 7 home premium. I'm trying to transfer data from my old computer with windows xp to the new machine.

Easy transfer works to the point where the actual transfer should be made, at which point i get an error message saying there is not enough disk space. I've called hp tech support, and they told me i'd have to pay for support as this is a "third party" issue.

Win 7 Reports Wrong Free Space On Hard Drive

I have 4 partitions set up on my hard drive. 1st partition has my windows 7 installation and some other microsoft products such as the office suit and visual studio and such.

2nd partition is empty and i'm not using it right now
3rd partition i have encrypted with the bitlock and use it for important files
4th partition i use for everything else. This partition is 219 gb in size. I have movie files, music, pictures, software iso's and the program files folder with lots of software.

Total all that data is exactly 48. T gb. I got this number in two different ways both equaling 48. 7 gb: first i manually calculated the sizes of all the folders and then to verify i used a utility called jdiskreport which confirmed my calculation.

The problem is that windows tells me that my 4th partition is completely full and only 1. 3 gb is left when clearly that doesn't make sense. I am missing 160gb which is a large number. I looked at all possibilities: hidden files, system restore files but there's nothing there. I would like to know if anyone out there has any idea as to what's going on and how i can fix it. Absolutely any ideas are welcome.

Failed To Delete Port Error 1722

I have two printers which worked perfectly for months in 64 bit windows 7 ultimate. Then i noticed a  rpc server is unavailable error message (it only appeared during one windows 7 start) . The next time i turned the machine on both printers showed yellow exclamation marks with a result of no drivers. The  hp deskjet 990cxi uses a driver that is already in 64 bit windows and this always fails to install. I download the brother label printer driver a couple of times and when installing that driver get the failed to delete port error.

I checked the 3 rpc statements in services and all are automatic. I have looked for extra copies of spoolsv.exe and only found extra with exactly the same size as the one in system32 and when i replaced the one in system32 with it there was no change. Also spoolss.dll is present in system32. I downloaded another copy of that from the net and installed it and there was no change. The malignant software scanner reported nothing and i have avg running all the time without any message.

Not Enough Disc Space To Temporarily Store Files

When starting the upgrade process from vista to 7 home premium and 27 gb free on hard drive i'm told that there isn't enough free space to temporarily store windows files. I delete another 10 gb- same message. Clear it out up to 45, then 50 gb of free space (its only a 100 gb drive) same message. Finally end up deleting everything i'm allowed to, up to 62 gb free space now- same message. Shut down, reboot, same message. My itunes is gone- everything is off it- same message.

Win 7 Install Taking Up To Much Space

I've just installed windows 7 ultimate 32bit and when i went into computers to check my hard drive usage it my c drive was around 180 gig / 290 gig. I haven't installed any of my backup yet as well and im pretty sure it doesn't take up around 100 gigs for windows 7. One more thing i had minor problem installing windows 7 my setup kept restarting so i "think" i installed windows 7 multiple times. If i did install it multiple times how do i delete the other window 7 files?

Cannot Delete Files

I just moved from a computer with vista to one with windows 7 (64-bit). In doing, i saved a bunch of emails on the old computer as files, then copied them (over a wireless network) to the new computer. The browser was firefox; the files are . Eml filetype. Now, i want to delete some.

I can't delete the individual files: 'delete' doesn't appear in the context menu, and i can't drag them to the recycle bin. However, i think i can delete the entire folder: 'delete' is in the folder's context menu, whether the folder is in the left or main pane. But i don't want to delete the entire folder.

Now this is what i really don't understand. I go the folder's properties, uncheck the read-only box (it's not checked, but solid color), hit 'apply' and 'ok, " i get a window and it's running through all the files. But when i go back to the folder's properties, the box is filled in again. The read-only box for the files is unchecked, but i still can't delete then.

I ran windows explorer as administrator, but it doesn't seem to matter. The 'full control' box is checked in properties. Details.

I even added a "no need to keep" subfolder. I can copy the . Eml files i no longer want to that folder, but not move them, which is what i want to do (to clean out the folder).

What should i do?

Duplicate Files Will Not Delete

When i upgraded to windows 7 everything on my computer duplicated once or twice. I have done an inventory and am trying to delete the duplicate files. I select files and then either hit the "delete" key or do a right click and choose "delete. "

However. After i do this process for a few files my computer will no longer do this. After selecting the files to delete i press the "delete" key or right click to reveal the list with "delete" and neither works. The delete key does nothing and the right click does not bring up the menu with delete in it.

The only thing that helps (sometimes) is for me to close the "inventory" and re-open it. Then i have to re-sort the list to show the duplicate files and try to delete them. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't i have to close the file and re-open it again. Or turn off my computer and restart it. After deleting a few files it stops working again. L

Deleting all of the duplicate files on my computer is going to take me weeks. Doing when the delete key or delete menu doesn't work could take me forever.

Can anybody help  with this?

Cannot Delete Folder With Files In It

Every time i try to delete a folder with files in it i get "you need permission to perform this action". I used a fresh install on win7, it's the 64-bit version, professional. This happens anytime i try to delete folders with something in them. I made the folders, so i can't see that it's a permission thing. As well, i can go into the folder and just delete the files, and when that is done, i can delete the folder, which means to me that the files were not in use. Suggestions?

Unable To Move / Delete / Rename Files

It's a simple problem but i cant find any solution. I dl a video from youtube (the 'guide' i followed http://www.Youtube.com/watch?V=q-c5ldefcxa) and now i have some files with the size 0 bytes on my desktop that i cant move, delete or rename. I've tried delete, shift+delete, drag and drop in the trash, deleting using cmd. The feedback is that my comp is unable to find the files.
I downloaded a program that delete files at boot (gipo@moveonboot) but it returns with 'access denied' when i select the files.

I've also tried to create a new file with the exact name and when i do it 'disappears' into the file i want to delete, but when i drop the file it is deleted and the original file remains (when i rename the file theres no warning that it's the same name as another file). I'm out of ideas to approach this problem so please help me! Running w7 home premium on a dell studio 15 (don't think it matter but anyway. )

Ps. The files is just annoying and not dangerous in any way, also the ending is just a '. ' 'example. Flv. ' ds.

Win7 Gave Me Bad Information Concerning Files To Delete

I tried to install windows 7 on my desktop computer. I am upgrading from vista, using the 32 bit disk. Windows ran the compatibility program and came back with information concerning items i needed to uninstall in order for the procedure to go smoothly. I did what i was advised to do and now the program can't install because it can't get online. One of the items it told me to uninstall was the google tool bar, one was hardware diagnostic tools, one was intellitype and one was commodo internet security. Obviously one of them, (or all) facilitated getting online. Help, help, help.

Administrator Password Required To Delete Win 7 Old Files

When i attempt to delete the "old'files i receive a notice saying administrator authorization required. There is no option but either 'try again' same results or 'quit'. I have read a couple of items here on the subject but not on actually deleting the file. I need the space back on c drive. The files are also to large for the recycle bin. Do you have to delete a few hundred at a time. As i have been working on the laptop it seems like some of the files are still being used rather than they have become redundant, that so?

I added a new drive and set up a raid array. This deleted all the information on my old drive. I already performed a clean install of windows 7 home premium on the new array.

I am trying to prevent installing the entire os again.

Kb980408 Update Install Failed

Installed win7 pro on my hp desktop two days ago. Installed about 30 updates without issue but am getting hung up on one of them.

Kb980408 keeps failing. The error i get is: "windowsupdate_800b0100" "windowsupdate_dt000"

I downloaded the update and attempted a manual installation but that did not work either. I tried microsoft fixit and it did not resolve the issue even with aggressive mode. I've tried running the system update readiness tool but that didn't work for me. I've pasted the log at the end of this message if it's of any use.

The only antivirus i am running is microsoft security essentials.

Error 25015 Failed To Install .net 2.0

Just purchased a kodak esc9 printer. Spent 4 hours yesterday on  chat, then phone with kodak customer service attempting to load software. Told me to call back today. This must be a windows problem. The .net 2. 0 software is on printer disk, tried from disk and later from win download site. No luck after many, many, attempts after making different changes. Recently installed hard drive in different pc, had to recover windows, not a pleasant experience. That took days. Grrrrr. Is this related?  Have auto update turned on and am up to date with win and anti-virus. Any suggestions?

Installer Has Been Corrupted After Failed To Install Office Update

My windows installer has been corrupted since a failed to install office update (kb981715). Now i cannot install adobe reader. I have vista home premium, 32 bit on my dell inspiron 518 (purchased march 2009) last, april (2010) i had a failed to install update (kb981715) for microsoft office  2007 and after many , many hours working with a microsoft tech support, i finally was told to just hide that update because my "windows works plus" didn't need this update.

However, i believe that this "failed to install update" removed part of the windows installer and i have been unable to get updates for adobe reader and after i uninstalled that software, i could not install that new download at all.microsoft support page will not accept my correct product id, so now i can't even get that help. What will happen if i try to download a new windows installer?
