A few days ago I started getting an error message in a pop up balloon saying
"Delayed Write Failed....windows was unable to save all of the file to
......." I have changed nothing on my computer. What should I do?

More about : delayed write failed

Curious, When do you get this message ? Power blip/dip/surge 'might' cause
that if you don't use a battery back up.

I don't-know yours - but if mine maybe I would or might go into device
manager and look at properties for the hard drive, then look at policies -
if it has a delayed write check box or advanced catching change it from
enabled or not, to whatever is opposite and try that for a while.

Rachel,
Is this an external drive? USB or Firewire?
More info please. What bumtracks gave you is correct.
However, there is more info available depending on your situation.
Best,
Treeman

It is just my internal harddrive on my laptop. It occurs when I go into
Internet Explorer but other times too.

There might be a problem with your hard drive (let's hope not). Backup all
your important stuff just in case. I had this problem with a hard drive,
turned out to be faulty.

How about turning off the write cache? In XP Home, the path to the
'Write Cache' settings is... My Computer / right click on drive /
properties / hardware / properties / policies / mark checkbox
appropriately. Note: This may cause the Hybernate function to slow
dramatically. Personally, I don't use Hybernate.

I tried that and it still continues to give me that error message. Any other
ideas?
