The save failed due to out of memory or disk space.


  • Hello I get this message when I attempt to save my 374 page .doc journal. The save failed due to out of memory or disk space.

    I'm running windows 7 and using Office 2003. I've checked and I'm not out of memory. I've checked the clipboard and it's not full, I've checked for temporary word files. etc. It almost seems as if Office Word 2003 can only hold so many words and pictures in one file. I had to break the journal up into 2 parts. Any ideas? Thanks for any help. Jim

  • Hi Jim,


    Thanks for the post!


    You can refer to this Microsoft official article:


    You receive an “Out of memory” error message when you try to save a file


    If it doesn’t work, I also recommend you ask this question in Office Forum due to this word issue.
