I have an 2006 Intel iMac that I'm starting to have problems with. I have Microsoft Office 2004 for a Mac installed on it. I'm working on an important document that I keep loosing the work I've done on it because it won't let me save the document more than 3 times before I get an ERROR message that says I don't have enough hard drive space left on my computer to save it. It tells me to delete files or close out other programs and try it again. I have 72GB left on my 150GB hard drive. I don't understand why this message keeps coming up. Could someone PLEASE help me with this issues? Thanks, Jay

Well, it is a Mac!!!
Sorry, couldn't resist......
Can you save the file to a USB key or another drive?
Try renaming file and saving it and see if that works.
Do you have problems with any other files?
