How to fix the “there is not enough space available memory or disk space” error message?
If you are getting this error message when opening a Microsoft Excel file (.xls or .xlsx), that reads :
Microsoft Excel cannot open or save any more documents because there is not enough space available memory or disk space.
- To make more memory available, close workbooks or programs you no longer need.
- To free disk space, delete files you no longer need from the disk you are saving to.
Chances are you’ve downloaded the file online or via email attachment, either way, there’s a quick fix for it.
How to fix the issue
- Right click on the Excel file, select Properties
- in the General tab
- Click Unblock button
- Click Ok to save changes and exit
