Message: Error writing to disk

Version: 3.5x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

Problem

During a LaTeX compilation, the system displays this message:

Error writing to disk.

Explanation

The program tries to save the temporary data generated in the course of the compilation. Some of the required files may be in use by another instance of the TrueTeX Formatter or they may be otherwise inaccessible. If the data can't be saved, the program displays the message.

Solution

  • Check to make sure that all files associated with the document are in the correct directories.

  • Check that none of the associated files are read-only files.

  • Check that multiple copies of the TrueTeX Formatter aren't running. Close all instances of the formatter and try the compilation again.

  • If the program still can't save the temporary data, send the file to our Technical Support staff.
