MS Word error - The disk is full. Free some space on this drive,
I have been working on a project where I received some macro code via email. After I made some changes to the files, I tried to save the file to a new name. I could not save the file anywhere on my computer, except as an RTF file. The RTF file format is useless - MS Word warned me that it would not save any of the macros.
This bogus "disk is full error" is a problem that many other users have seen. After several months of searching, I found an answer that worked for me.
I can't link to it, since that web site is no longer available:
The solution appears to be related to corruption in Word's normal.dot file. I closed Word, deleted the normal.dot file and restarted Word. Then I was able to open and edit those other macro files, and save my changes - but not to a *.dot file. I had to first save to a *.doc file, then change the file extension.
