DISK IS FULL means that you are out of space

Your hard disk has no more space on it. Delete some files to make room.

Two Questions...

1) How much space is left on the disk?

2) How big is the file(s) you are trying to save?

If the first number isn't larger than the second number then there's your problem.

Are you sure you're trying to save the file to that disk which has the 10GB available? Which operating system you're running?

and what program?
Older programs (16 bit) that check whether a disk is full (as a help to users) often use a 16 bit integer to contain the number of bytes returned by the applicable operating system functions.
If the diskspace is more than 2GB or so that int will loop around and give a negative number leading the program to think the disk is full.
The only possible course of action (apart from using another program) is to actually make sure you have LESS space available when writing (less than 2GB to be precise).

or a kind of trashcan is holding the space for deleted files.
