I keep running inot a frustrating problem with SAS uninverstiy running on Virtual box on a Mac. I have tried reinstalling it but keep having thesame problem of running out of disk space. Is this a SAS studio issue or virtual box issue? How can I fix it? Thanks in advance
Here's the code I am trying to run and the error.

The fact that a considerable number of pages has already been written indicates that you do have space, but not enough.
Keep in mind that a PROC SORT will require at least twice the original data set size in free disk space (the utility file and the output dataset).
Try to clear away as much as you can from your WORK library before performing the SORT that crashes.

Hi, Ejike. Just an additional word on this: I've seen a situation where a class of 20 or so students were given an assignment using the same data. All but one completed it successfully. The other student, while solid in her approach, kept running out of space. I don't know the particulars of your case (and am not really qualified to advise on programming), but just wanted you to know this.
The SAS University Edition VM is installed with about 5GB of free space. For learning purposes, that is usually enough.Hope this helps!
