Message 6108 - Posted: 4 Feb 2017, 8:29:42 UTC

Hi,

on my Linux system ATLAS does not delete the data from old workunits. From time to time it complains about not having enough disk space, then I manually celan up the projects-folder from my BOINC-directory and then it continues working.

Other project like SETI or LHC do not show this behaviour.

Is there any workaround for this?

Thanks!

You may check:
- access rights (also for parent directories)
- mount options

You may try:
- a project reset
- a detach/reattach
- a VirtualBox upgrade

You may also work through Yeti´s checklist.

Nope, my Checklist doesn't spot any light on this

If nothing else helps it´s a good idea to go through your checklist :-)
It gives you a feeling where side effects and pitfalls could be hidden.

Too much of honour, but thanks

> access rights (also for parent directories)

It can write files successfully, so it also should have no problem deleting it - it is the same privilege.

> mount options

...are the same for SETI@home, LHC@home and Einstein@home - and all of them do not leave back any crap

> a project reset

does not help

> a detach/reattach

does not help

> a VirtualBox upgrade

does not help (but should not have to do anything with the data that are located outside of the scope of VB)

I also updated BOINC completely but this morning ALTAS@home again complained about missing disk space - and again had more than 4 GByte crap left behind in its project directory.

I think I will remove it, it is way too buggy comparing to other projects...

Maybe open virtualbox and delete by right click on the VM which appears with a red sign, in order to clean up virtualbox.And you reboot after this operation.

It may fix the issue.

It is recognized that this project is more difficult than others because it needs cruncher 's attention to check its way of running.
It 's a real fact.

OK, so nothing that can run in background like all other projects... :-/
