When you attempt to save a mail attachment to your hard disk in OutlookExpress, you may receive the following error message:
The command failed to execute.
There is not enough free disk space on your hard disk to save theattachment.
Increase the amount of free space on your hard disk by using one or moreof the following methods:

  • Remove any unnecessary files from the hard disk.
  • Empty the Recycle Bin.
  • Delete the Internet Explorer Setup folder. The Internet Explorer Setup folder contains a copy of the Setup files so you can reinstall Internet Explorer from the hard disk instead of having to download another copy from the Microsoft Web site. Deleting this folder does not affect the performance of Internet Explorer.
After you free some hard disk space, try to save the attachment again.
