Error: File not found

File not found
I got this error second time in two months so I thought I would share my experience with the readers. As you may know, there could be several reasons for this error. If you google internet for this specific SharePoint error, you will find a couple of posts discussing the issue:
As you will notice in the above two posts, in both cases the cause of the error was different. In one case, it was related to web part. In other case, it was related to a misplaced CSS file. In my case, the problem was due to low disk space in system drive. Interesting? I checked IIS, sites were running. Checked DB! Databases were up! I created and tested a WSP on my server before the error appeared on my server. I retracted and deleted the WSP although I was sure it had nothing to do with the error. Then I noticed, my server was performing slow. Checked processes, they were ok. Checked for virus. No virus found! In the end, I noticed the server was slow because it had run out of space on system drive. I freed up some space and SharePoint sites started working. I thought I would share this with my blog readers. If you see this error next time, don't forget to check space on your system drive.
