petiteplaisance Posted February 3, 2006 Report Share Posted February 3, 2006 Alas, I thought I had finally solved the temporary-data-storage problem that I wrote to this forum about back in January (see thread entitled "Inaccurate 'Folder Is Read-only' Error Message, Etc."). I have been using one D2D-formatted CD-R disk to back up files from my desktop that I then transfer to my laptop and a separate D2D-formatted CD-R disk to back up files from my laptop that I then transfer to my laptop. Please note that I am not relying on these D2D-formatted disks for long-term storage. This system worked fine from January 8 until a couple of days ago, when I went to back up my Quicken file (as I have done successfully several times before) and got the message "Cannot save 'E:\Filename.qdf'. The folder is marked as 'Read Only'." Other variations on this message are "Cannot create or replace 'Filename'. Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use." When I right-click on Properties for the CD-R in Windows Explorer, I get "Used space 1,703,936 bytes, 1.62 MB" and 0 bytes of free space. The largest file on the CD-R (an Outlook pst file) is 280,192KB, and the next largest file (a Quicken qdf file) is 11,230KB. All the other files, of which there is a total of only 25, are on the order of 6KB to 200KB. How, then, could a 700MB CD-R disk be "full"? Does this make sense? Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions you might have! Joan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
