cure for exceeding profile storage space

 I’ve found a cure for exceeding my profile storage space. Didn’t work on campus but it’s solved the problem on my laptop. Paste this code into Notepad

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


 Save the file to the Desktop with the name undopolicy.reg and select All Files. Double click the Desktop icon and say Yes to  add to Registry.  Problem solved.  I can now shut down with that horrendous bleeping noise and those irritating messages 🙂

  1. One other technique I’ve found useful: in Windows Explorer, go to: Tools > Folder Options > View, then select ‘Show hidden files and folders’. I found some out-of-date temp files and old (corrupted?) auto-recovered documents on my desktop that I deleted.

    Other than that, I’ve found it helps to clear your Java cache from time to time (there are a couple of tricks for doing this, but I’ve no idea whether they are sanctioned by ICT so I won’t recommend them!!!).
