"Error writing file; check disk space or write permissions".

"Error writing file; check disk space or write permissions".

I have a user who is occasionally getting the message: "Error writing file; check disk space or write permissions" when he tries to save an assembly. He is able to save individual parts he is working on in the same directory, but not the assembly itself. Plenty of free disk space and looks like his security settings are correct. The odd thing is, the problem only happens occasionally. I noticed he is using an earlier build of Pro/E - M030, going to update him to a newer build, see if that helps.

Anyone else run into this problem?


Windows XP, Wildfire 3.0 - M030.


Thanks,

David

I have run into this problem as well.

Disk space is fine. Windows XP Professional, WF2, M160

Yes it was sporadic, and it is not doing it now. Curious to see if you
find out anything. We are upgrading to WF4 soon.

I have experienced this as well. I take it as an indicator that it is time
to restart my computer. That seems to correct the problem.

That is interesting. It has been awhile, but I thought we tried that
and it didn't seem to make a difference.

Restarting my PC doesn't work for me either

What I've found is that one (or possibly more) files get set to
"open" or "in use" by Windows on the Server. I discovered this by
viewing my Retrospect Back Up Error Log the first time I got a
back-up error. If Windows thinks a file is in use by another user -
it will not allow the write.
This usually occurs when a Check-In fails for some reason or another
- I specifically remember it happening when I lost a connection when
checking in from home - sure enough - I had a file set to open on
Monday morning and my Check-In would fail.
By rebooting the server - we were able to get windows to "release"
the offending file.
A DB-Shutdown didn't do it - the Server had to be rebooted - a real pain.

Could be the culprit - or maybe not.

We used to have that problem a lot when we were on 2001, it happened a
lot less on WF 2.0, have not yet noticed it in the 2 weeks we have been
on WF 3.0 M120.

Usually seemed to die when saving family table parts that were in the
assembly. Also if you hit the save button again immediately it would go
through just fine. We never did get a good answer as to what the issue
might be. Tech support suggested that it was a network issue but I
don't know that I buy that.

Parameters filled out from excel

Has anyone imported IGES or Step into PROE and then imported from excel,
data that would fill out parameters within the proe model?

Todd,



We have been doing the same steps as Lance for a few years and it works
great. Recently we have replaced the parameters/relations step with
modelcheck used in save mode.

RE: Parameters filled out from excel

Lance & Co,

Is there some reason you wouldn't want the imported files to use the start part files? We use the config.pro option "intf_in_use_template_models" >yes to force STEP, IGES, etc. to use our start part template. That way we've got our parameters, datums, layers in the model. The user just tells Pro/E to open the import file and it automatically contains our standard info. Just a thought.

Rich,

I agree, you do want to use a start part all of the time so you have all
of your company standards incorporated.

Once in a while you will recieve a part from a vendor, other company or a
newbie just imports it, so you have to add the parameters.

Re: "Error writing file; check disk space or write permissions".

I am still getting this problem in. 5.0. It's the student version and I'm using it for class. I don't know if it has anything to do with saving files to a flash drive.

I'm on CREO Parametric 6.0 and I just ran into this problem message today.
