HP Pavilion Multimedia Monitors
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I am trying to play an old game that I played on my PC many times in the past-Return to Catle Wolfenstein. I have installed it and managed to play a few levels but now get an error message when I try to load the game - "Insufficient free  Disk space please add ar least 5MB.

My PC is showing 606 GB of free space and excepting the pre-loaded Microsoft games I have no other games in the drive.I am using Steam to access the game  but prior to that I had tried to just install the game without Steam to no avail getting an error message about Hunkusage.dat whatever that is. I have trawled through  all the possible solutions to  this problem with no result. Is there anyone who has any idea what to do to get rid of this problem?

@Gothamite, welcome to the forum.

 

I suggest searching the Steam forums for answer to your problem.  I play several games through Steam and have had similar problems which I was able to solve on their forums.  I believe your problem has to do with some of their settings.

I found the solution but not through Steam. I am not sure how  I successfuly installed the game but it was installed. The problem that generated the error messages had to do with too many quick saves. I found that any more than two created a problem. So I deleted a saved game before adding a new one. Since I discovered that it has been fine.

 

Many thanks for replying and I hope my exprience helps anyone encountering the same problem.

Just a post script that I should have mentioned. After posting my question I was phoned by someone alleging that they were from HP help and offering free advice. The offer seemed like numerous South Asian  call center calls I have  had  over many months sometimes saying they are from Microsoft or lately from the US Dept. of Bonds (?). What steps can the forum  take to prevent these scammers from accessing the site?
