Blu-ray Copy

  1. What does "There are no space in C: drive" mean?

DVDFab Blu-ray Copy needs at least 100 GB of Free Hard Disk Space.
Before the content of the blu-ray movie is burned into the blank disk, DVDFab must finish certain decoding and encoding jobs which require some amount of free space on the hard drive to store data. 100 GB free hard disk space mentioned here is just for this issue. You can set the output directory and temporay directory to the other drive which has enough free place in "General" settings window.
