Version 8 had a problem with the large disk drives. Something to do with the size of the field that and binary numbers overflowing that size I suppose.

Anyway if the Drive partition is over 2GB Family Origins 8 seems to think that it is full. It only seems to happen on Windows NT, 2000 and XP. On Windows 95 and 98 I know I have used version 8 on larger partitions than that. You can either create a partition of 2GB or less or send your backups and GEDCOMS to removable disks. A CD should work, but I suppose that a Writable DVD would again be over the 2GB limit.

ANYWAY, it is fixed in version 10. I don't remember if it was in 9 or not.
