I thought I'd check in case I'm being snowed...
Is this really necessary?

Probably one of your disk space settings is messed up. Try resetting them, be sure to put leading zeros where needed, "0.2" for instance.

We definitely don't ask you for 13GB of disk space :-/

I think this message is a result of general settings. BOINC will leave a certain % of disk space free on your harddrive (and only use a certain amount in total across all BOINC projects), but if the LHC WU were downloaded the harddrive would be too full according to one of these rules.
To resolve this, you can adjust the %s, or delete some BOINC data from other projects, or delete some non-BOINC data.

... or run BOINC on a partition with more space on it.

Hi,

Thanks for the info, and yes, I'm now happily crunching again.
My hard disk was indeed getting full, and the general BOINC settings have been adjusted.

Thanks!
