SharePoint Document Upload Error: Unable to complete this operation. Please contact your administrator.

Scenario: 

When we try to upload document / images error page appear with following extension: 

Unable to complete this operation. Please contact your administrator. 

When we try to upload text document, it worked but when we increased the sixe from 45Bytes to 450KB, it failed with the same message. 

Resolution: 

You ran out of space either on SQL Server or on Server Machine. Created space and we were back on track.

    How do you determine if I am running out of space in SQL Server?

      I don’t know any application which can alert but my experience was from an error email from the user 😦

    If you’re using SQL Express 2005 and have this issue but find that there is still plenty of free space on your SQL machine then you’ve probably hit the 4GB limit. Upgrading to 2008 Express should fix it as this has a 10GB limit.
