Download: Policy.zip (Exceeded Profile Storage Space Fix)

Download IconDownload Policy.zip (policy.reg)

This is a registry file used to fix the issue with Windows XP where the user receives the error message:

Profile Storage Space – You have exceeded your profile storage space. 

Before you can log off, you need to move some items from your profile to network or local storage.

On Proposed Solution I use policy.reg to fix the Windows error “You have exceeded your profile storage space.” in this article:  Error: You Have Exceeded Your Profile Storage Space…

Download & Usage Instructions:

  1. To download the file simply click the LIKE button in the download area below.  After clicking LIKE the download link will appear.

  4. Extract the file policy.reg to your desktop
  5. Double-click policy.reg
  6. If you receive and Open File – Security Warning click Run
  7. You’ll the be asked:  Are you sure you want to add the information in policy.reg to the registry?
  8. Click Yes > Click OK
  9. Reboot
