Error 0x80070718: Not enough quota is available to process this command

    Question

  • I received the subject error message whiel trying to copy / move some data from my server (MC05) to my Vista RC1 laptop. It prevents me from copying or moving the data. The files are on being moved from mapped drives from teh server to a local host storage location. These files were contained in folder at are sync'd to the laptop, but I do not want them sync'd (PSTs and such) so I am moving them locally to get them out of the remote store that is sync'd, yet still have them available offline.

    What does the error mean, and and how do I work around it?

  •    I am using Windows XP Professional SP3 also.

       If you take a look at the Event Viewer in the Control Panel - Administrative Tools folder, you can find and open the Event Viewer and find the corresponding event.

      

       The report of the event will be similar to the following:

     

       Windows cannot unload your registry file. The memory used by the registry has not been freed. This is often caused by services running as a user account, try configuring the services to run in either the LocalService or NetworkService account. If this problem persists, contact your administrator. 

     DETAIL - Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

     

       Find the correct event in the first place, and then open the Link, like the one above, in the Event Log (double-click the corresponding event), and you will now be browsing the Help and Support Centre (which might require Internet connexion). Read the solution, and you will find the resolution to the technical issue under User Action.

     

       This type of events requires the user to download and install the Microsoft User Profile Hive Cleanup Service (UPHClean), a tool produced by Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=6676.

       Open this web page, and you will find the corresponding information and other possible solutions, if this tool fail to solve your problem.

       Contact me and tell me the result (s).

  • I installed VISTA on my desktop and now can't save any new files, or create folders across a mapped drive to our Windows 2003 file server! Very frustrating!

  • I have Vista RTM and am getting the same error only when moving to a local folder.  Copy is not a problem.

  • Having the same problem. Vista RTM trying to move data to a network share (offline files)

  • I am receiving the same error - was anyone able to find a solution?

  • Here is what I had to do to fix this error:

    I deleted all remnants of my network account on my local computer. Including my user account. I then tried to log back in and then was getting a GPO error. Then I manually re-created a network account on my local computer, and it all began working as it should. It had to do with the permissions on my local computer not allowing me to save across a network drive.

  • Helllloo! Is this thing on?

    We receive the same error here when we attempt to move folders.

    Tuesday, May 22, 2007 9:40 PM
  • I'm having the same problem, not sure why I cannot copy/move files bigger than 1Mb

    I cannot play with the network settings or change my account settings, since I have not Admin rights.

    Do I need to contact Administrator to reset my account, or what?

  • I am also having the same problem (or at least the same error message in similar circumstances). My intuition is that this is related to the offline files feature. I can no longer do substantial write operations to a folder hierarchy on my Vista laptop that is supposed to be synced to a Vista server file hierarchy. It arose after I wrote a bunch of new data to the client folder in offline mode, which may indicate that there is in fact some sort of storage issue at play.

     

    In general the offline files feature seems a bit buggy to me still. This is not the only issue I have run into with it. Despite Jim Alchin's sweepeing blog post to the contrary, I think it works better in XP.

  • Hi guys,

     

    My solution was to go to Control Panel>Offline Files and increase the amount of disk space available to both offline files in general and the temporary space (for the sake of simplicity, I increased it by the same amount of the number of files I needed to move but less would probably have done). 

     

    HTH.

  • Thanks, yes, this definitely solved my problem as well. A more solution-oriented error message directing people to form would probably save some grief (and would be a low-cost fix).

  • I've also got this problem while trying to copy 60GB from Vista 64 bit to a XP share. If I use the XP machine to pull the same data from the Vista machine it works.

     

    Does this mean for it to work from Visa -> XP I have to increase the amount of disk space available to both offline files in general and the temporary space to 60GB? I often transfer large amounts of data between machines so this will be a recurring issue for me.

     

    Is this still a bug with XP / Vista or just a "feature"? Anyone know if Microsoft are working on this?

     

    I also heard disabling windows defender in Vista may help, anyone tried this?

  • To find Offline Files you have to switch to Classic View.

  • i had the same problem, but noticed .  I also had this folder set for offline sync in Vista although I was online.  I went ahead and performed a SYNC and then the files moved fine.

    Gota love the simplicity of that answer, too bad Microsoft doesn't have this in their error dialog  box, little easier to interpret than,

  • For Win7 the selection in control panel is "SYNC"just in-case someone is searching for "offline" in control panel, I know it might be silly but it pays to be CLEAR!

  • THANKYOU John!  Increasing my disc space worked perfectly!!!  Took a while with Windows 7 to get my offlines to show properly and then change the settings, but well worth the time!  Thanks so much!  =)
