I recently started having issues with my office application. It first started with word. I could not edit doc or docx files created by other users but i could open word or any office files that I created , whenever i tried to open such files i had an error about there not being enough quota (this error was prompted by TuneUp Utilities 2014 which i had installed at the time). So i uninstalled TuneUp and restarted my computer and no office application opens. Whenever i try to open my any word file (mine included) I get an error saying "windows could not find the file specified" even though i clicking the said file. I have reinstalled office but this issue remained the same. I would like to know is there an issue with the office or some other issue ?

MS Word not being enough quota error

If you happen to receive an error that is somewhat referring to your quota or you don’t have enough quota, it is possible that a disk quota is enabled on your computer. Disk quotas are only available if your hard drive is formatted with the NTFS file system and in your case I guess you are using this file system on your hard drive.

To check if a disk quota is implemented on your computer, open Windows Explorer then right-click drive C then select Properties. Select Quota tab then verify if “Enable quota management” is enabled. If this option is checked then disk quotas are implemented on your computer. To disable disk quotas, simply uncheck this option then click OK. See image.

See if you can now use any Microsoft Office application. If you still can’t, check all the drives on your computer if disk quotas are implemented and then disable them. Also, try reinstalling Microsoft Office after disabling the disk quota on your computer.
