Oracle VM Virtual Box - Not enough Work library space

I would like to INCREASE the Work space (I do not want to clean/delete temp file). I have tried using the follwoing method:

http://www.howtogeek.com/124622/how-to-enlarge-a-virtual-machines-disk-in-virtualbox-or-vmware/

 

I did not know where my work library path was so I typed this:

%put %sysfunc(getoption(work));

Here is what I got:

/tmp/SAS_work35550000085F_localhost.localdomain/SAS_work099F0000085F_localhost.localdomain

 

Then I tried to type the following code in the prompt command (following the procedure of the above website):

VBoxManage modifyhd “/tmp/SAS_work35550000085F_localhost.localdomain/SAS_work099F0000085F_localhost.localdomain” --resize 81920 

 

But did not work. Should I use \ instead of /? Also, the path seem to end with "name.vdi". What would that be in my case? 

 

If I am on the wrong track, please let me know how to increase the size. Thanks!

Note that I have checked that I have enough physical space on my drive.

Here is the exact error I am getting:
ERROR: Insufficient space in file WORK.DATA2.DATA.
ERROR: File WORK.DATA2.DATA is damaged. I/O processing did not complete.

You can't modify these settings in SAS UE. It's a locked down environment. 

 

What's triggering this error? Restart your VM and see If that error disappears.

I am working with rather large files (~15 Go data). The work library seem full.

Yes, I have restarted VM several times. I have rebooted my computer too. It did not help Smiley Sad

Hmmm...that sucks.

Did you say you were trying to work with 15gb of data? I think that would be well beyond what SAS UE is designed for. It's for learning purposes and the max system set up is 2 cores and 2GB of RAM.  15GB probably cannot be processed with SAS UE.

 

Regarding space, I think you're going to have to reinstall the VM from scratch. I haven't seen a workaround for the full workspace error as of yet.

SAS UE is for learning, not for these kinds of quantity structures.

Reduce your dataset size so it fits into SAS/UE space.
