During FrontPage Setup, you receive a message indicating that you do not have sufficient disk space. Specifically, the disk space required may be only slightly more--about 2 to 4 megabytes (MB)--than what you have available.


The FrontPage Setup program sets aside some extra buffer space in its calculation of required disk space. This allows FrontPage Setup to reserve space for temporary files that are required during Setup. The FrontPage Setup program also reserves extra space because some larger hard disks use a larger cluster size that requires more physical space to store the same amount of data as a hard disk with a smaller cluster size.


To resolve this problem, make sure you have at least 2 to 4 MB of additional free hard disk space than indicated by the FrontPage Setup program.
