Published on April 12th, 2022

Error code 1407 is a Windows error code that indicates a problem with the registry. This error code can occur for a number of reasons, but most often it is caused by a corrupt or damaged registry. The registry is a critical component of the Windows operating system, and it is responsible for storing all of the settings and options for the system and for all of the software installed on the system. When the registry becomes corrupt or damaged, it can cause a number of problems, including the 1407 error code. There are a number of ways to repair a corrupt or damaged registry, but the most effective way is to use a reliable registry cleaner tool.

1. Check that the volume is not full by running the `df` command

The df command helps to check if the volume is not full. To check the volume is not full, you can use the df command with the -h option to get a human-readable output. In the output, you can find the error code 1407, which means the volume is not full.

2. Check that the file system is not in read-only mode by running the `mount` command

The mount command can be used to check whether the file system is in read-only mode. To do this, you can use the following command: mount | grep readonly If the output of the mount command shows that the file system is in read-only mode, you can fix the error code by performing the following steps:

  1. Rename the read-only file to a non-read-only file.
  2. Change the mode of the read-only file to be executable.
  3. Mount the file system.

3. Try to unmount and remount the file system

To try to unmount and remount the file system in order to fix error code 1407, follow these steps:

  1. Boot the computer into Safe Mode.
  2. Start the Windows Recovery Environment by pressing the Windows key and R at the same time.
  3. In the Windows Recovery Environment, click Command Prompt (Admin).
  4. Type the following command and press Enter: fsutil unmount C:
  5. Type the following command and press Enter: fsutil remount C:
  6. If the file system is not mounted, the command will fail and you will need to try the steps again. If the file system is mounted, the command will succeed and the file system will be unmounted and remounted.

If the answers above didn't work then you should also try:

  1. Try to run the fsck command on the file system.
  2. Try to repair the file system with the repair command.
