Hey guys, I downloaded Dosbox onto my new laptop along with everything else I need to be able to play Sim tower. On my old laptop I had no problem at all. I copied my saved files from the old sim tower folder onto my new laptop and now when I try to save the game, it says "Disk is full or locked". Can anyone help me with this? I got all the way to 4 stars and the SOB didn't save Angry

Any help would be appreciated.

Operating a Asus zenbook windows 10. Game works perfectly just won't fricken save.

You might have a permissions issue in windows. The files or directory copied from the old computer may be read-only for your user. That is pretty common an issue. Right click -> properties on the folder and/or files, check the read-only flag and the security tab to make sure you have write/full permissions.

More rare, but you might have "too much free space" on your new hard drive and dosbox and the game sometimes combine to say "no free space" / "disk full" when that happens. There's a parameter on the mount command to tell dosbox not to report more than the amount of freespace you tell it, as I recall. I'm not able to look it up at the moment, but you should be able to find it in dosbox mount docs.
