I know this is a stupid question, but how BIG is a wu? I've brought my settings from requesting over 100,000 sec of work, to use no more than 3Gb of space, leave at theast 2Gb free, use no more than 75% of space, and leave me enough work to last me between 0.1 to 0.5 days. But I keep on getting this message each time I open BOINC:

...but here are my computer stats:

Memory
768 MB
Cache

% of time client is on
64.4201 %
% of time host is connected
64.4201 %
% of time user is active
64.4201 %

...and I still haven't recieved a wu yet. What don't I get here? Is there a bug with the prefs and a modem? I've tried every setting I can think of, and others that has been successful for others. HELP!!!

Thx ^_~,

It answers your question 'No work from project', if they have no work they cant send you any :D and need more space

You need to up the space that Boinc can use me thinks

There are 3 numbers that BOINC uses to determine whether enough disk is left. Use at most X, Leave at least Y, and use Z%. Check all three. BOINC/S@H uses [/url]

The 7.9G of disk space remaining on your HD is less than the 75% maximum usage that you have set. I would either free up more HD space, change the maximum to 95%, or install another HD for Boinc to run on. I hope this helps...
