HI everyone! I'm new to posting on this forum but I visit and read frequently! I have a problem of my own and I'm hoping someone/anyone can shed some light. Here is my situation! Last night while trying to install a program, I got a window stating not enough hard drive space to install program. The thing is, the computer is empty! I checked out my C: drive properties and looked at my Drive capacity pie which showed all blue. Hard drive full. My hard drive is 250GB x 2 Raid 0.

Is it possible one of raid drives failed? Would this cause this to happen? If this in fact the case does anyone have an idea of how I can rectify this error. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance, Juless.

If a RAID 0 drive had failed, Windows would not have loaded up at all, because in a RAID 0 array, if one drive fails then the entire array falls down and you lose everything.

Is this XP with Service Pack 1 or later? XP with no service packs can only see up to 137Gb.
