Disk Full Error

When ever I try to sign in , I keep getting a DISK FULL error.

I tried reinstalling, and it loads fine with another account.

But whenever I try with mine, I can't.

I also deleted all chat logs and temp. Files.

I just don't know what to do at this point

Re: Disk Full Error

Quit Skype.

 

Hold the Windows key and trype r.  In the box that comes up type:

 

appdata_skype.jpg

 

Click OK.   Find the folder with your Skype name and rename it something like \myname_old.

 

Restart Skype and see if you can sign in now.

Re: Disk Full Error

Renaming the folder with my skypename in Appdata/Roaming/Skype worked for perfectly for me. Perhaps the instruction could be made even clearer:

 

Add a screencapture of the above mentioned folder and show the username before and after change.

 

It is my experience that you need to be very concrete for evading misunderstandings.

This solution worked perfectly for me

SUGGESTION - in your instruction, add a screen capture of the appdata folder with the skypename and show the skypename folder before and after change. It is my experience that you can never be enough concrete for evading misunderstandings.
