I encountered the following error when I tried to export a SAS dataset (897MB 481 variables) to excel spreadsheet from EG(5.1 (188.8.131.5208) Hot fix 13 (64-bit))
An unexpected internal failure occurred in the FileSystem component, or one of its descendants.
I have PC/SAS runing Win 7 x64 with 16gb ram and 213 GB hard drive space. The SAS dataset is resides in local drive c:\test and SAS/EG is also resides in the same local drive.Can anyone able to tell me what this error means and anything I can do to make it work ? or EG config need to be tweeted or switch to turn on/off ? I have no problem to export with smaller files.
Thanks for all your help.

How are you exporting?
And if to XLS you are likely exceeding the number of records and columns allowed. If XLXS the record limit is 1,048,576 so if you have more than that number of records that could be the problem.
