Last night I connected to battle.net just fine. Today I tried an it says "unable to write file to hard drive make sure you have free space" or something similar to that. I have plenty of space on google they said to try running as admin an giving the warcraft 3 files write access. Running as admin didn't work and I don't know how to give Warcraft 3 write access. Can anyone help? Using Vista btw but like I said it worked fine last night.

I've been having the same problem. I definitely have enough hard drive space on my computer so this error is really bugging me. I can't find anything about this error. I'm using Vista 64-bit so I'm curious as to whether or not its the culprit.

I fixed it by unchecking the read only on my warcraft 3 folder. I was using Vista though an it was'nt letting me do it until I had taken ownership of the warcraft 3 folder. Which you will have to google how to do that cause I don't remember.
