Error Message - No Space
| ERROR #001100279 has occurred in subroutine ErrAction. |

My simulation failed and this error message appeared multiple times. I am not sure where exactly it has ran out of space. I have my file saved to the c: drive where there is 300GB of space.

I get the same error when I run a simulation, then go back adjust the geometry and then update the project. Or when I have a very large control volume.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Thank you.

You have run out of space. Maybe you have a disk quota, maybe your simulation is trying to write a huge file, maybe you are writing to another drive. Somehow you have run out of space.

Or maybe you don't have write permissions and this is reported as zero free disk space.

Is there any way to tell where it is trying to write to? Does it write to locations other than where I have the project saved?

CFX standalone writes only into the working directory. Possibly the workbench uses some temproary drives some where else.
