[Chimera-users] Error in Windows saving a session

Hi Eric
Thanks for getting back to me.
I’m just trying to save a .py file. Not sure how to save a compressed version…
I’ve tried saving in different directories, but that didn’t work either. The session contains 5 PDB files and a single .mrc file (a low resolution EM dataset). The PDB files are 5 ~40 kDa proteins, so not huge.
The disk I’m writing to has ~140 GB free out of 500.
Sounds like one of those elusive problems…
Please let me know if you’d like me to try anything else.
Best regards
Joel

Hi Joel,
            We have had this reported infrequently by other users and have had no success in tracking it down.  Can you answer a couple of questions for me?  Are you writing a compressed session file?  Is the disk you are writing to nearly full?  Thanks.

Hi all
Have other people seen (and solved!) this error before (below)? I’m having it crop up pretty much all the time now when I try to save a session (on my Win7 machine – running Chimera 1.11.2.
Thanks
