Message 7880 - Posted 12 Jun 2009 2:13:30 UTC

    Hi, I have had this error pop up several times. My computer has over 50GB free and yet get messages like yo must free 88840MB before Boinc gets space. I have other programs (eg Rectilinear crossing and einstein (@home)) running but I never get this error with them! I have just uploaded and reported one job and now this!! It doesn\'t make sense! How do I get it to work again. I have rebooted and other projects are running.

      What are your \"Disk and memory usage\" settings (under \"Computing preferences\")? Too high a value for \"Leave at least\" and/or too low for \"Use at most\" could be limiting BOINC\'s ability to use free disk space unnecessarily.

        I have tried with leave at least 1 GB and 10GB (I have currently 50GB free space), Use at Most set to 1GB , 5GB and 10GB, and Use at Most 10-50% of disk space free. I basically used the same preferences as I had on my other similarly configured laptop. One computer seems to work fine, while the other always was working well and suddenly gets the errors!!!! I have had a similar range of errors when I tried running this program on my desktop running VIsta (64 bit) and have given up on that - all other boinc programs I have tried seem to run OK on it. I can\'t figure where it comes up with the number as it doesn\'t seem to relate to free-, used- or total- space.

          \"Leave at least\" and \"Use at most\" could be limiting issues if your non-BOINC computer usage tends to generate large temporary disk files (e.g. video editing, gaming, etc). If you are not using your \"problem computer\" that way, I doubt that adjusting these prefs will help.
