Error writing compressed file

      Hello everyone,


      I am having a problem to save and, consequently, to run simulations in Ansys 19.


      I always get this same error:


      Error writing "| gzip -2cfv > C:Path...tFFF.cas.gz".


      I have already replaced gzip.exe, changed the path, but it didn't work. 


      I use Windows 10. 


      Any suggestions why this is happening? I really appreciate it.


      Thanks.

      The full error message is:


       


      Error: Error writing compressed file "FFF-Setup-Output.cas.gz"

      Error: Error writing compressed file 
      Error Object: #f

      Error: Error writing "| gzip -2cf > FFF-Setup-Output.cas.gz".
      Error Object: #f


       


      This message cames up when I start the calculation.


       


      Thanks again.

      Hello Carol,


      Have you (1) just installed ANSYS and this error was present on the first model you tried to make, or (2) have you had Fluent models that worked in the past and this error recently started happening?


      In the case of (1), is your model on a local drive installed on the computer like C:  D: or E:  etc?   Is the folder on that drive consists of English only characters?  Is your Username on that computer consists of only English characters?


      I'm sure others may have suggestions.


      Regards,


      Peter

      I am also looking for a solution to this same issue. My error also came on the first model I tried to make

      Hi, Peter.


      My folder consists in only English characters. This error is present on the first model.


      The alternative solution I found was to archive case in the workbench and then open it in Fluent standalone.


      However, it is not possible to save case and data yet.


       


      Thanks.


      Carol.

      Check disc space & write permissions both in the folder you're writing to but also in the scratch space (possibly C:UserssomethingDocuments or C:UserssomethingAppDataLocalTemp)  as it's probably trying to create a temporary file. 


      You can find these folder IDs (and change them) in Workbench -> Tools -> Options -> Project Management
