Experienced this issue today. Apparently updating a word document with "track changes" can cause Word to error saying that the Macintosh HD is full. (Which it is NOT). http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/mac/forum/macoffice2011-macword/the-disk-is-full-trying-to-write-to-macintosh-hd/8284db3c-bfa1-4aec-ad51-a97f5c134e48

the disk is full trying to write to macintosh hd

Word for Mac 2011 keeps giving me the following message: "the disk is full trying to write to macintosh hd", followed by a message saying that autorecover cannot save the file to the chosen location.

Topics: Microsoft Office
