While deleting folders a few days ago I suddenly started getting messages
which mean I can delete no more folders, nor change their names.

The message reads: "Cannot delete this folder. Right click the folder and
then click Properties to check your permissions for the folder. See the
folder owner or your administrator to change your permissions. The folder is
full".

The folder is NOT full. I have tried emptying folders but still cannot
delete them when empty. I cannot find any info about "permissions". I am the
only user of this PC and it is not linked to any others so i am, by default,
the administrator.

Help!!

Thanks,

Simon

PS: Last time I used this group I found I was unable to thank those who
helped, for some reason, so if this happens again, please know that I am
grateful!

Same problem. Cannot move or delete new folders I've created in Outlook 2007.

Home user; wireless network. Problem started in past 24 hours. Tried
reloading Office 2007 Standard Upgrade, but didn't help.

"Folder is Full" (it's empty)

or

"Right Click, click Properties to check permissions" (admin box is grayed
out)

SAME PROBLEM, I am trying to delete an empty folder (which I have done many
times in the past) and I now receive this same error.

Perhaps it's your Deleted Items folder that's full and so it won't accept any
more items from other folders. Does it delete if you hold Shift down when you
try to delete it?
