View Full Version : Couldn't allocat dir [Errno 22]

Trying to download the smashing pumpkins drown disc. Everytime a click on the torrent and determine where it is to go i get the following: couldn't allocate dir [errno 22]. I looked in the faq to no avail. Never seen it before and it is the only torrent it happens on. Thanks in advance for any help.
You guys rock.

I think it means you are lacking hd space and/or need to defrag

I believe that is the error message for an invalid character in the directory name. Looking at the torrent, I saw a ":" in the dir name. Try removing that character from the name and try it then.

Explosivo, I think you are correct, but I cannot download the torrent name; and thus I cannot remove the character. Any suggestions. Thanks so far.

Perhaps try downloading it with a different browser. Try firefox and you'll never want to go back to IE. :D
