Excel does not have enough disk space

I tried to save an Excel file – pressed CTRL+S – and got:

There is not enough disk space. Free enough disk space, and then try again.



1. How much is enough?

2. Enough for what?

3. Disc? I have opened the file through a shared network folder. Technically speaking, there might be a disk somewhere there deep below the surface.

4. What will happen when I click OK? Will my file be saved or will I lose the data?


Quantify “enough”. Specify the action that cannot be performed. Offer to save at a different location. Maybe avoid speaking of “disks”, using just “space” might be enough.
