"There is not enough space on the disk" ?
« on: February 26, 2010, 04:03:44 AM »
During a scan Avast found a Trojan horse.  Recommended action was "move to chest".  When I selected "move to chest", a window popped up saying "There is not enough disk space on disk".  Yet, there is 195 GB available on the disk.  What's up with that?  What now?
Thanks,
Eric

What avast version are you using 4.8 or 5.0 ?

Basically the file you are trying to send to the chest exceeds the Maximum size of file to be sent or possibly the Maximum size of the chest, both of these settings can be changed from the avast Settings, Chest (4.8 ) or Virus Chest (5.0 ).
