Hard Drive Full, Check the space you're downloading to.

In addition to John's suggestion - if you are not confident of your understanding of your system and the process of installing software and upgrading your files without losing data - then invest in having a professional do it for you - can be done simply via Team Viewer by any Accredited Partner - I am sure John would be happy to do it for you?

Are you referring to my computer hard drive? because it is not full; 410GB free of 465GB, or the applications Drive is 176GB free of 0.99TB I don't get any options as to where the file will be saved, it's disk full before I can do anything.

Really, I should not have to pay an "accredited partner" to install an update. I can follow the process. I will request a disk if necessary.

Hi Sandie,

You can change the destination folder where downloads are being stored.

The specific process would be dependent on the web browser you are using such as Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft IE, Edge, Safari, etc.

You can do a web search for the following key phrase "How to change default download location for <name of web browser >"

Example:

"How to change default download location for Firefox"


Regards,

I'm not an "accredited partner" pay me.

Many reason why you could have that error, none of them happen to do with Reckon or does it....
