Skydrive says no space!

    Skydrive says no space!


    Hello,

    I have merged two screenshots. Skydrive doesn't sync my phone images with my desktop. All is good on my laptop.

    Here is what I see!

    Anybody know how to fix it?

    You haven't enough space on your C drive. Skydrive needs both space for the new image and some space in the c:/SkyDriveTemp directory to Synch. It seems you only have 58GB on C: drive and only 1GB free.

    Can you post a picture of disk management like the one below - perhaps you could extend the partition as Dell 3521 specs indicate it normally has 500Gb.

    If not we'll have to look into deleting something but your C: drive is VERY full.

    Yes, I do have a lot of space in the other partition, will do that. How much does skydrive need?

    P.S. The issue is with my desktop.

    Well you need as much more space as the amount of stuff you want to save. You should also have 15% space free so if you have 86GB you should make the C: 100GB. Otherwise defrag will not work properly.

    Alternately you can move Skydrive onto another partition with more space. Right click and then click on move.
