"there isn't enough free space" error

Strange Solution for this Error Message

Have you ever run into this kind of error message:

'There isn't enough free space'

Usually this occurs when trying to save a change. The weird thing is that when you look at the disk space there's plenty.

The lack of disk space can't be the reason.

What's Going On?

The other reason for the error is when the system clock is not set. Especially if the date is around 1970.

This may happen if your computer battery drained and it's not connected to the internet.

Quick Easy Solution

Simply fixing the clock will fix the error.
