Hello SETI members, I had to abort some prijects becuase of it not running right. Would like these projects put back on my list. Now how would I do this my self or can anyone help me. I can't run other projects, SETI takes all the room on disk and I have lots of memory left.

Thank You

Pete L

Once you abort a workunit, it is automatically sent to another user. You cannot request workunits that you aborted to be returned to you. You will, however, automatically get assigned new workunits when BOINC asks for more.

SETI takes all the room on disk

Only if you call <100 MB "all the room on disk" (Look in 'Disk' tab)


... and I have lots of memory left

So you would like if SETI occupies all the memory?

Thanks for all, I understand now about me aborting a project was letting a helper to let me know. As long I get a replacement for it, these projects was not letting my others to work.

Thank you

You only run one task / CPU or GPU at any given time.
