(compMus1) More Disk Full Problems

Last week someone came to me with another problem about Peak not able to process DSP commands due to disk full errors. The seemingly obvious answer is to check the scratch disk folder, making sure it is somewhere that the student login can write to. But in this case, the scratch folder was set to Desktop, which should work.

Jeff has discovered a problem with the login script that is causing this new problem. The solution is not automated yet, and involves tracking Jeff down to clear space. This problem may also relate to the slow performance of DP on some computers in the lab, as a nearly full disk takes longer to read and write files due to fragmentation.

Here is Jeff’s post about the problem.
