The Disk if Full Trying to Write to Hard Drive

Hi,

I have installed Mac OS X Lion (10.7) and the latest Microsoft Office update. Since these upgrades I have been receiving error messages in Microsoft Word 2008. The first message says "The Disk if Full Trying to Write to Hard Drive." while the second states that Microsoft Word is unable to save the Auto Recover file in my specified location (Documents/Microsoft User Data).

I am sure my files are not corrupt as I did not receive these errors before I installed OS X 10.7 and updated Microsoft Office. These error messages pop up every 10 minutes. I would to prefer to keep Auto Recover enabled as I often use Microsoft Word and do not wish to lose any data.

How can I fix this error besides turning Auto Recover off?

Hello Clark,

To work around that issue, you will need to do the following:

  • You will need to start Microsoft Word.
  • And then on the Tools menu, click Options.
  • After that click the File Locations tab.
  • And then go to File Types and click User Templates, and then click Modify.
  • After that go to the Modify Location dialog box,  and then choose a new folder name, and then click OK.
  • Under File Types, you will need to click Workgroup Templates, and then click Modify.
  • And then go to the Modify Location dialog box and choose a new folder name, and then click OK twice.
  • After that, quit Word without saving changes to the Normal.dot file, and then restart Word.

Regards,

Carl
