Hey need help
while i was installing wr7.6 ...i went all the way thru and at the end i got the error message --"There isn't enough disk space in folder .\Microsoft shared\DAO for the file dao2535.tlb. To continue first free disc space on drive and the click retry."
If you do have File/disk compression enabled, do you have any any large files compressed (usually denoted by then being a different color in the Windows Explorer - usually blue)?
In some situations, with Compresion enabled, windows will allow you to compress the file or directory, but not allow you to use all the space on the disk, just in case you want to turn off compression there has to be enough physical space on the disk to allow you to expand the file.
One of those stupid situations with MS in they allow you to compress to save space, but you can't use any more "real" space then the actual files incase you want to turn it off. An example is if you compressed a 100M file to 50M, Windows will still keep 100M set aside in space total for when you want to decompress, so there is 50M of space you saved, but then can't really use either.
With 100G free, I can't see where this would be a major issue, but it could also have affected the size of the DAO directory if anything in it is compressed. I've seen it happen on folder quota systems.
Plus some other ideas to look at:
