ERROR: Windows error code: 1117 in hc_disk_normal_read for....... error

[ Edited ]

Hi Everyone

I am running desktop SAS 9.4, EG 7.11 on a Windows 10 laptop with 12 GB memory and plugged into a USB 3.0 64 GB flashdrive (currently 30 GB free). I have used the flashdrive for some time now, but Win 10 is new along with an increase in memory from 4 to 12 GB.

 

I keep getting the below error for I/O error in the below data step. This flashdrive has been great in the past, so it shouldn't be an issue. Any ideas?

 

Also, I use the same flashdrive with the same laptop for other programs yesterday and it was fine. This error happens periodically.

The flash drive may have developed problems. I would look at system tools for diagnsis.

Can you copy the file using windows tools to a folder on your harddrive?

That is a good thought about the hard drive--I will try that. I thought about running it from the network drive here, but that slows things down dramatically, but the hard drive may not.
