Topic 189105

I tried to install E@H on second computer (Windows 98SE) with 8.7 GB free on a 30GB drive, but E@H balks, saying "(...you don't have enough disc space allocated.) No disc space (you must have 649.9MB before BOINC gets space..."
So isn't 8.7GB > 649.9MB, or has there been a disc space warp?
What do I do?

By reading the directions correctly! On the "general preferences" page there is a setting "leave at least _____Gbytes free." I had previously set that to exceed the available free disc space, leaving none for E@H.

Ohh yes, right :) To exeed the available space was actually used as a trick to run down caches and not getting more work, when such manouvre was needed - before 4.25 I think

OK sorry but I'm at a loss. I've searched and dug and flipped over rocks but I'm runnin out of luck here. I tried following this thread and it's most likely a bad thing to admit but "Preferences" on my BOINC Manager is nowhere to be found. Here is the message I am receiving:

8/3/2005 7:08:14 PM|Einstein@Home|Message from server: (there was work but you don't have enough disk space allocated)

8/3/2005 7:08:14 PM|Einstein@Home|Message from server: No disk space (you must free 8655.2 MB before BOINC gets space). Review preferences for minimum disk free space allowed.

I apologize ahead of time as I'm sure this will be an easy fix and is probably listed here somewhere or in an obvious place I'm overlooking. All help is appreciated.

Well, lessons can be tough :) I flipped over the obvious rock and found my answer. Just for the sake of the next guy here's what was done:

1. Go to the project homepage
2. Look for "Your Account" and "Preferences"
3. Login and go to Your Preferences
4. Scroll down, click on any available Edit button.

I shall now tuck my tail and reconsider a hobby in coloring books.
