How much hard drive space does your computer have free?

I had this error about two weeks ago. I ended up having to back up my aircraft/scenery and sound folders (basically everything that I'd added over the year), uninstall and re-install FS9. It turns out my AI Aardvark Boing 747-400 Pratt and Whitney folder was duff, along with my traffic file for Island Air (Hawaii). Try taking each of these out (if you have them) first just to see if you've got the same problem.Other than reinstallation I'm affraid I couldn't sort it any other way.Good luck

Before you got that message, was the game running slower and slower? CTRL-ALT-DELETE, check FS9 Memory usage, if it keeps on growing and growing, you have a memory leak. Usually its a area, maybe a airport.

Maybe you have some other process taking up all the memory. Checkedfor viruses recently ?I can get this error if I don't log out all the other people onthe computer first - my son plays games which also use large amountsof resources.
