Beta Client Disk Drive Space Error? Follow

Hi all. My boyfriend is having an issue with opening up the ffxivsetup file, so he asked me to post on here for him. He and I both got the file from FilePlanet. Mine went fine and is currently downloading but when he double-clicks the file it tells him there isn't enough free disk space "on the drive containing the MyDocuments folder." Problem is he never got an option to choose a drive to download it to in the first place. Sometimes it gives him a different error regarding some Windows Vista patch (we both use Windows 7). Anyone else having this issue?

It defaults to the drive with the my documents folder (Usually the c: drive). How much space does he have on that drive?

Should be more then enough, he try restarting the pc? What location did he save the file, was it on his C drive?

Yeah, he's restarted his system. He's trying to re-download the ffxivsetup file again just in case it was bad to begin with... But yeah, he saved the ffxivsetup file onto C:.

I know I've seen this problem discussed on here with possible solutions, but it may be buried and it may be hidden inside another thread about the DL, not specifically about that problem...so yeah that really doesn't help you, but I bring it up because someone may be able to find it...

He deleted the old file and just re-downloaded it and now it's working fine... Thank you for the assistance, guys. Sorry if it was any waste of your time/forum space; he was in panic mode and really wanted me to post about it in case someone knew what was up. :( Thank you so much though; I appreciate that you took the time to post. Rated you up each time.
