I get the message (windows write delayed)
How can I get rid of this?
what are you doing when it happens... more info is nice.
it started when i closed word ,i just says the info is lost.
saving to a server?
can i have the set up of your computer. When did this start?
when i had that problem it was 2 things, 2 different times. one was too many apps trying to write to the hdd, and the other time was a bad cable or the ide cable being too long like 36 inches.
That happens when the partition or the HDD runs out of space. Also, if you are saving to a network, and the network source gets shut off or interuppted, you'll get these messages too. Could also be a sign of your HDD going bad, although most newer drives have technology built in to warn you off this (S.M.A.R.T)
Who's the manufacturer of your HDD, when did you buy it? Did you do a CHKDSK?
thanks all following the advice seems to have resolved the issue.
what advice did you follow the link?
