The disk may be full or has too little free space to perform the desired operation. To get additional space:

  • Remove deleted files (right-click on the trash-bin and select Empty recycle bin)
  • Remove unneeded files, such as browser cached files.
  • Move files to another drive or media
  • Compress or Zip large files to take up less space
  • Transfer the system to a new larger drive

Several software products that can help clean and remove unneeded files are Fix-It Utilities Professional and SystemSuite Professional. If you need to move or copy a partition or entire drive, you could use Partition Commander or similar product.
