Hello - my Python 2.5 IDLE used to start up, but now it won't.

I tried looking at the preferences - those don't have any glaring mistakes.

When I try to start it command line I get the following error:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

G:\>cd python25/lib/idlelib

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "G:\Python25\Lib\idlelib\", line 21, in <module>
File "C:\Python25\lib\idlelib\", line 1402, in main
shell = flist.open_shell()
File "C:\Python25\lib\idlelib\", line 275, in open_shell
self.pyshell = PyShell(self)

rf_file = open(self.recent_files_path, 'w')
IOError: [Errno 28] No space left on device: 'G:\\.idlerc\\recent-files.lst'

What is going on? I would very much like to be able to use 2.5. I can get 2.6 to work, but the modules I need don't have a version in 2.6 because of the Numeric/Numpy difference

Never mind. Finally figured it out. 2 drives - one local, one network. One was full.

Thanks to those who read the post!
