The disk you were saving to or the disk used for temporary files is full

AUGUST 24, 2012 UPDATE: You can eliminate Adobe Reader bugs, by downloading the FREE READER at the Foxit Downloads page.

Hundreds of people have come to this site because their Adobe Reader X says, "The disk you were saving to or the disk used for temporary files is full. Free some space on this disk and try again, or save to a different disk". That is a bug in Adobe Reader. You can follow the procedure in this post below. OR, you can simply download the free Foxit Reader. That's what I do. I use Foxit Reader with no problems.

Why do I use the FREE Foxit Reader?
  • It is easy to use.
  • It doesn't have that bad "Disk full" bug.
  • I can open and save PDF files. Even the newest on the internet.
  • It is compatible with Internet Explorer and Firefox.
  • FREE Foxit Reader can save PDF files from the internet.

Adobe X when you're using Windows Explorer: "The disk you were saving to or the disk used for temporary files is full. Free some space on this disk and try again, or save to a different disk."

This can happen when you're using Internet Explorer and the Adobe Reader X version and try to download a PDF from the internet.

If you are using Internet Explorer, and you use the Adobe X plug-in to save a PDF file, you may receive that message.

This can happen when using Adobe X plug-in to save a PDF file using Internet Explorer 8. But we can work around this bug, by changing from 'Protected Mode' to 'Unprotected Mode'.
"The disk you were saving to or the disk used for temporary files is full. Free some space on this disk and try again, or save to a different disk."

This is a bug related to protected mode in Adobe Reader X. Unchecking "Enable Protected Mode at startup" in the General tab should fix this.

SOLUTION PROCEDURE:
Step 1. Exit the page with the PDF. Close Adobe Reader X.

Step 2. Open Adobe Reader X. Go to 'Edit', then scroll down to 'Preferences' in your Adobe X. (see picture below.)

Step 3. In the Preferences Dialog, click the 'General' Category, and at the bottom you should see 'Enable Protected Mode at Startup'. (See picture below.)

There should NOT be a check there. Click once to remove the check-mark. Click to UN-check, so remove the check-mark.

Step 4. Toggle Off the box, then click 'Yes' when prompted. (See picture below.)


Then click 'OK'.



Step 5. Close Adobe Reader X. Then open Adobe Reader X.

and you've done the work-around. You can begin saving your file.

Did it work? Good!
