Error: Cannot write record - Disk full? - Bad record? - Read only?

Solution or Workaround


This error occurs when running BUFFER:

   Cannot write record. 
Disk full?
Bad record?
Read only?


Disk space, corrupted data, or access permissions.


1. Make sure you have enough disk space. BUFFER requires about 10-15 times the coverage size for scratch processing

2. Check the integrity of your data.

3. Check DOS variables like SCRMAN. You need to have write access to the current workspace.
