Warning-low disk space mystery
Hi

Donít know if you can help me. I dual boot Windows Vista and XP. (Vista on main partition)

I used Easy BCD creator to create the partitions as per tutorials and everything has worked fine until now.

When I created the XP partition I only allocated 12 GB which was recommended for operating system drivers and folders. The reality is I only use XP for downloading files and burning etc but the files are extracted to another drive which has plenty of space. I now find that Iím unable to extract (WinRar) files in XP as I keep getting the disk warning, not sufficient space etc etc. The warning relates to the XP Partition which only has about 2 GB available.

I researched this and found that it could be due to the XP partition being FAT 32 rather than NTFS etc but I donít think thatís the issue here. (PC cam with Vista preinstalled and I partitioned that drive).

Why would I get this message all of a sudden when?

1. The files are being extracted to another drive which has plenty of space.
2. I havenít added anything to the XP partition for ages so it has always been about 10Gb used and 2Gb spare

Many thanks
