Re: Getting around insufficient space issues

You may have a loop in your code or your data is too large.

Post your code and some info about your data, OS and sas environment.

I'm using sas data sets in the help icon that already exist in sas base

If this is SAS University Edition, you might suffer from a well-known problem where the remnants of crashed SAS sessions clutter up the space within the VM, until it becomes (near) unusable.

In which case your best option is to do a fresh install of the UE VM. Make sure all your permanent data and programs are in the shared folder, so you can back them up from the Windows side.

 

PS but we still need to see your code in order to determine if your code as such is the culprit.
