What to do if you got the “Got error 28 from storage engine” in mySQL?

I had logged into PhPMyAdmin and was trying to add some fields into a table when
I got the error “Got error 28 from storage engine”. I tried to refresh the page but
it kept coming. I closed the browser and then tried to run my website and found that
the same error message was coming on the website. Funny thing was that the message was coming sometimes and other times it worked fine. I Googled around and found that this error comes when there is very little space on the storage drive. I scanned the drive and voila found that the drive had a couple of MB’s free. I cleaned the drive of useless programs and files and the error went away.
