    Sounds like you are going to have to free up some disk space in the very near future. Good luck.

    I have 238GB of free space in D, I didn't had this problem when I had 70GB free in D

    EDIT : Is there any diagnostic tool for HDD?

    I thought you were referring to the actual disk spec remaining when you said:

    Disk space was on 99%
    I'm not sure that what you read actually meant what you said. It possibly meant the disk was spending 99% of the time reading and writing and that would be normal for a large direct download.
