60 GB is not a lot of space for windows...

That's not much information. Is there really not anything else in the log? Like a
traceback, that may give some clues what the application is doing when it is running out

Based on the info you provided, the only solution I can think of is: free more space.
Something in your application is trying to write stuff and there's simply not enough
space on the disk to do so.
