What Causes the Error 0x80070718 on Windows?

After going through some basic troubleshooting guides, we concluded that the following are some of the most prominent reasons that are responsible for the occurrence of the ‘Not Enough Quota is Available to process this command” error.

  • Disk Usage Limits: It is possible that your computer has established a Disk Usage limit for the networking folder and that is preventing the computer from being able to write on the folder since it is being limited. It is very crucial that the Disk Usage limit is increased to get rid of the ‘Not Enough Quota is available to process this command’ error.
  • Default Save Location: If you have selected a save location based on the default location or if you changed it recently, it might actually be the location that you selected which is causing the Error 0x80070718 on your Windows computer. This is because the location might have a limit of the disk space that the networking feature is able to use.
  • Paging File Size: Another prominent reason which can end up triggering the Error 0x80070718 on your computer, is the Paging File Size that you have allocated to the disk on which the folder is being stored. It is very crucial that there is enough Paging memory present for the process to be executed properly.
