what means "enough space"? are you try to create the db by a administrative user? – Salvatore Di Fazio Feb 7 '13 at 10:29

Sounds like SQL Server is configured to put the SQL Server Databases on a different drive than you want.

Check the SQL Server Configuration for the Default Database Data Drive and Database Log Drive.

  • Use SQL Server Management Console
  • Connect to your SQL Server
  • Right-Click on the Server Name and choose Properties
  • Click the 'Database Settings' tab
  • Check the values for the default data / log file directory, update as appropriate

If its not that, check your other databases, particularly that your SharePoint Config Database has free space.
