Hi everyone,

I'm having this problem for a while now.

I have a folder on my hard drive that I want to move to my external hard drive.
The folder is about 3gig's big and I have about 400gig's of space on my external hard drive, but I
still get the error that I don't have enough disk space!
how come??
please answer as easy as possible, as I am not that good in computers! ;) 

thanks anyway
grtz

Welcome to the forums!

Look at the permissions on the external hard drive.
Right click on the drive and make sure you have write permissions.

Hi to you (:

I should have write permissions because I've allready copied some files to my harddisk
and I changed the settings to 'full management' (dunno if its called like this in english, but the literal translation is like that)
so I still don't see why my folder wouldn't copy!!

please help! xD

Run manufacturer hard disk diagnostics.

Have a look at this disk space usage utility. It shows you how the hard disk space is distributed on your computer.
