Cannot reinstall game, says not enough memoryFollow

Tried reinstalling the game but it gives an error message saying the drive with the "My Documents" folder does not have 6GB, although the folder is in C:\ and has like 40GB. Anyone know why? Using Vista 32-bit SP2, had the game installed before but had some issues so wanted to reinstall.

another thing I notice was, the log files/macro files were saved in the My Games folder all along, until suddenly this June it started creating a new folder called user in c:\ and began saving the macro files and log files there instead.

That's fraud. Wouldn't try it unless you really don't wanna play FFXIV for a while. :)

Agreed - but even if you are not a collage student, and are still in school somewhere, you can purchase the software directly from Microsoft for the student discount price, though you will need to provide proof of educational institution (high-school and tech school count). The reason for your issue with a problem with out Windows Vista uses disk quotas within user profiles. Despite changes to the OS that allows the use of user and public folders to install games they never totally fixed the quota problem. A fresh upgrade to Win7 will clear that up quickly.

The legality of the suggestion you made is what was called into question. Student editions of software are for students, claiming to be a student to acquire a lower cost solution to the problem carries with it the same penalties as out-right piracy.
