Directory Full?

Directory Full?

Directory Full?

The server that has Seagate Info on it has 49.7MB left on the hard drive.  
I am getting the following error messages:
Warning: directory \\.....SI\Ouput is 99 percent full.  This directory has 540 objects - 262MB.
Warning: directory \\.....SI\Cache is 99 percent full.
This directory has 936 Objects - 26.9KB
Warning: directory \\.....SI\X86\CITemp is 99 percent full.

Am I right to assume that because the server hard drive is down to 49.7MB left, that Seagate Info is telling me that it needs move room?  Does Seagate Info need a certain amount of free space to operate?

Thanks very much for your help.

RE: Directory Full?

49.7MB free is indeed the reason you're getting the warning. Info isn't particularly space intensive, but you do need to housekeep - either manually or automated - every once in a while.

The chances are that your C:\Temp directory is pretty full, and can be wasted. Dump it. Also, if you're caching your instances on the server, switch it off in the Administrator if you don't really need to cache.

Keep an eye on the rate which space on your hard drive gets eaten up, and cleanout as necessary.

All the best,


RE: Directory Full?

If appears that I can cache to another area, or server on the same network, thus freeing up space on the Info server. Do you know if that causes any problems?


RE: Directory Full?

I shouldn't do - and if it's a viable option, it's actually preferable to storing on the server, in my opinion.

RE: Directory Full?

I meant "It shouldn't do", not "I shouldn't do". Basically, outsourcing the cache isn't a problem...
