Hi All,

Do I have a problem that can be fixed.

I have 4.6Gb space on the hard drive, the usage limits are set to 5Gb, 90% and with an attempt to download work for 86400 seconds. I have cut the work times down to 0.4/1 days to try to reduce the problem, and updated correctly.

I get "No work available(there was work but you don't have enough disk space allocated").

I cannot get any work units for this machine, just how much disk space do you need to run Boinc?

I ran S@H with a pair of 2Gb machines with no problems.

What is going wrong please?

DaveB

If you have 4.6GBs of space, don't set your limits to 5GB. Set to something within the actual space you have available.

It could be that see server was down. So try to update again.
But 4GB are enough.(all in all BOINC takes not more then 5 MB).

The whole is more then the sum of its particles. Aristoteles

OK Guys,

Thanks for the ideas, I've got it working now.

The solution was not exactly as either of you proposed, but both helped.

Basti suggested size did not matter, I checked my main comp and it is using 10MB or so. "Disk" of the faulty one had 3.46MB of prog and zero of other Seti.

I reset the "Work" preference to 3.5GB, minimum 1.5GB to give room for the rest of the junk on the disk. It still did not work.

I read of someone having problems with Boinc not using the right preferences, so I set the general preferences to 3.5GB and 1.5GB.

THAT WORKED.

I now have 6.63MB of SETI used space, and a unit running.

Once again -- Thanks.
