Excel not enough free memory

Opening files in Outlook shows an error message that there is not enough free memory to run the program.

But the computer has enough RAM installed and no other application is running on the computer except Outlook.

Office programs by default don't trust or block files originating from the Internet.

This is of course a good security settings but if this setting is getting to your nerves because even if the document that is coming from your own domain you are not able to open.

Or the file is originating from your own personal email account other than your company email but when it goes to your Outlook you cannot open it. This is the scenario where good and harsh words will start crossing your mind. You will need to ask what the heck is going on?

The Microsoft link below provide some solution on how this thing can be resolved.

The article title of the link below is:

Error message in Outlook: "There is not enough free memory to run this program. Quit one or more programs, and then try again"

But if the above link does not work try the steps below. After following the steps below, close Outlook and try again.

If everything goes well, then not enough memory issue should be resolved. If still not resolved then it could be some other issue, or the machine itself has not enough RAM or memory.

Robocopy [source][destination]   [file to be copied]
robocopy c:\local_c_folder  \\PC_network\shared_folder   file_to_be_copied_xx.txt
The command will be completed successfully provided the network access right has no issues.

Robocopy works quite good on large files. A simple copy or xcopy command will also work but the speed might vary.
