"no free space available"

#1 Post by russell » 16 Dec 2013, 09:47

I am very new to all this so please bear with me. I am using Photorec to recover files from a lost partition. I have successfully recovered hundreds of files but now I get a message that there's no free space available on the drive where the recovered files are. I created some some free space on that drive (over 100GB free now) but I still get the same message when I resume. I even tried another drive but I still get the same message. Please can somebody help? Many thanks.

I'm new to all this so please bear with me. I'm using photorec to recover files from a lost partition. The program has recovered hundreds of files so far but now I get a message "no free space available" even though there is more than 100GB available on the destination drive. It just refuses to recover any more files when I resume the recovery process. Just the same "no spaceavailable message". Please help. Many thanks.

PhotoRec returns this error message when it failed to write new data on the destination disk.
The problem can occurs sometimes if the destination is a FAT32 partition, a network drive or because the recovered data triggers the local antivirus. For this latter case, if you are under Windows, start Windows in safe mode and try again.
