[10g - XE] Why is my disk full of trace files?

Just in case there's another silly person like me out there who encounters this problem...
I have XE 10g installed on my local machine (Windows XP), as my own personal test environment.
My computer was acting really weird yesterday, then today I got an error while using Excel that my disk was full.... and after some investigating, I discovered that I have 39 GB (gasp!) of trace files! These are all located in the directory C:\oraclexe\app\oracle\product\10.2.0\server\NETWORK\trace
...and some of them are quite large (obviously, since I have 39 GB of them...); one of them by itself is 2 GB.
Almost all of the files are named like: sqlnet_trace.txt_3132_1.trc And, for example, I already have 5 trace files from today, totaling 15 MB.
I vaguely recalled setting my trace level to 16 or SUPPORT a LONG time ago, and funny thing, I couldn't remember changing it back to OFF.
So, if you've been silly like me, check your sqlnet.ora file, and set TRACE_LEVEL_CLIENT=OFF

Thanks for the tip. I checked listener.ora, and it doesn't appear that any trace files are enabled there. I don't know what Net manager is.
At least in this case, the server/database is just my personal PC, so the only person it impacted was me. It took 7 months for the trace files to grow to that size with just me using the database, so I can only imagine what it would do to a database in an actual environment.

    A MacBook will use Time Machine to make local backups so that when connected to an external drive it will backup a lot faster.
    to disable this, you must use a command under terminal.
    to locate terminal, do a search for it under spotlight (the magnifying glass on the top right corner), should be the first hit.
    once under terminal, type the following text exactly:
    sudo tmutil disablelocal
    hit enter.
    you will be asked to input your password, if you do not have a password, you will have to create one before performing this command. after entering your password, hit enter again and close terminal.
    in a few minutes the space taken up by time machine should be cleared.

  • MacBookAir Disk Full - but my files aren't that big...

    I have the 128MB MacBookAir which i recently bought whilst in the US, it is the most recent hardware and came with Lion installed originally.  Now, some 2 months on I find the hard drive is full, however my documents etc aren't that big:
         Audio 14.5 GB
         Movies 10 GB
         Photos 3.5 GB
         Apps 6 GB
         Other  85 GB
    Clearly this "Other" is the problem.  Looking through Finder at "All my Files" I have around 30 documents etc ranging between 40KB to a max of 6MB, so I really don't know what this "Other" consists of. I can't find it to delete it, but it is getting in the way of my MacBookAir functionning properly; I have insufficient room to download updates.
    Can anyone help?

    i had the same problem with my 128GB hard disk MacBook Air too. I used Finder to identify that it's my Users folder that contained invisible folders or files excessive in sizes. They accounted for some 80GB of the hard disk while the sizes of files in viewable folders totaled less than 6GB (including music and photo files). The culprit folders and files must have been hidden within the Users folder, I concluded.
    I downloaded TinkerTool successfully - be sure to download the corrrect version to match your Mac OS X version - and in thet General tab, I selected "Show hidden and system files", then I selected "Relaunch Finder" and using the relaunched Finder I was able to see a hugh hidden folder named "Library" within my Users folder. Probing further, I discovered hugh back up files in a "Back Up" folder within an "Application Support" folder inside the "Library" folder. The back up files numbered in the ten thousands, had cryptic file names, but were viewable by opening them with Textedit. I decided I don't need them and trashed the "Back Up" folder files to recover 70+GB.
    I read from TinkerTool FAQ that the Mac OS X originated from NeXT so many of the advanced file management features have been "deactivated" for the general user migrating up to OS X from the previous Mac OS. The simplicity, cleaniness, and user friendliness have been retained. It thus takes the use of tools like TinkerTool to accomplish additional tasks at times.
    Thanks all for the TinkerTool tips above! Just to share my own success story.

  • Upon start up I get a start up disk full message and to delete files, now I only get a a blue screen on start up. How to I get past the blue screen and how do I delete files?

    Upon start up I get a "start up disk full message, delete files". Now on startup I only get a blue screen. How do I get past the blue screen and how do I delete files.

    That;s really not enough free space... you can use a tools such as OmniDiskSweeper to find out where your large files reside and begin pruning (or copying to an external if they're files that you want to keep).
    One thing is certain - if you're going to continue your current usage you're certainly going to need to install a larger boot drive.

  • After effects error: rendering error while writing to file. Disk full.

    I tried to render a video in AE CC 2014, with RGB + Alpha as I wanted to keep the background transparent (rotoscoped) so that I can then use it in Premiere.
    I chose to export in Quicktime, with uncompressed 8bit.
    After it rendered it for a little while I had a window pop-up saying
    After effects error: rendering error while writing to file "E:...blabla". Disk full. The file may be damaged or corrupted. (-1610153463).
    I read a thread posted in the forums but i do not understand the solution provided there.. What is a POD??
    I have a Win7 Ultimate, x64. Plenty of disk space, and 16 Go ram.
    Please help, I canoot go further in my project with this bug...

    Is the drive you are rendering to formatted FAT32 by any chance? If so you can only render up to 4Gb for one file. Try rendering out a TIFF sequence instead. Litte tip - push the LZW compression tickbox in format options for a lossless compression, this will keep you file size way down.

  • After Effects Disk Full error (-1610153463) when rendering to QTs

    Hi! I'm having a very weird error on most of my computers when rendering to our shared storage,
    After Effects error: Rendering error while writing to file "E:\xxx.mov".  Disk Full. The file may be damaged or corrupted. (-1601053463)
    All the machines in here can access the same media and storage volumes, they are mounted as NTFS volumes fron an iSCSI storage called DDP. All this was working fine until about 2 weeks ago, nothing was updated or upgraded on the storage.
    Weird this is this do not fail if the render to the same location is done in AVI format, or with certain QT codecs.
    NON codec fails immediately, writes a QT that is about 8 MB in size and fails.
    DNXHD writes about 1 second of frames and fails.
    BMP codec fails too.
    all those codecs render fine if I render to my desktop or to my D drive that is also a local drive inside of the computer, NTFS formatted too. So the codes mys be fine.
    I can not discard ad storage issue, but like I said before, it ONLY fails if I use QT and some codecs, PhotoJPG for example does not fail, space, I have plenty.... and, this only happens from the windows computers, the MAC does not fail.
    I'll keep testing stuff and will post what I find.... but if anyone have any suggestions or ideas.... are very welcome...

    wonder if you read my previous post answering to myself?
    It is actually not a network drive, is is a NFTS drive mounted over iSCSI, its not a NFS volume. Workd fine for over a year, until last Windows Defender update... and it is actually fasted than my local drives since the local drives are simple SATA drives and this is a 48 Drives RAID connected over 10 GigE iSCSI and with a performance of 1050 MB/s.
    Even our projects are saved on these iSCSI volumes, so all the rooms we have can work from the same project without having to duplicate media or projects between rooms, so producers can jump from room to room with the projects if the artist is bussy with something else and they need changes, someone else can take care of it...

  • Why is Premiere 6 giving a "Error writing file (disk full?)" message?

    Hello helpful experts,
    I'm using Premiere 6 on a Windows 7 machine.
    I have a file imported in to the timeline and it is set to play in reverse via the speed setting being set to -100 and it plays back in the preview window correctly, in reverse, when I click the play button.
    But when I do a  "File>Export Timeline>Movie" command I get an error message saying "An error occurred while making the movie. Error writing file (disk full?)"... but my hard drive is not nearly full, with over 30 gigs left open on it... and my RAM usage gadget shows over half of my RAM capacity is unused.
    Now previously, weeks ago on a different project, I was getting this same error message for a while when I would hit enter to preview my movie on the timeline (but that worked itself out somehow and eventually stopped giving me that error message).  But when I went to save and export, then I would not get the error message... now, it is just the opposite... I'm now getting the error message when trying to do an export and save the movie.
    And also now when I hit enter to preview, as opposed to just clicking the play button on the preview window, Premiere is going through the process of saving the movie since it is saving a temporary preview file... hopefully, since I'm getting this error message, I can find the temporary preview file and save it as my exported AVI file.
    But I still shouldn't be getting this error message when trying to save, or when trying to preview, as I did for a while a couple of weeks ago.
    Does anyone know about the erroneous error message that says, "An error occurred while making the movie. Error writing file (disk full?)"

    Depending on your hard drive size, P6 may be confused... since drives were not as large when it was written

    I am unable to complete captures because I get a message
    that says "capture stopped because disk was full." What
    does this mean?

    If you are using a Pinnacle card, a possible solution to
    this is to right click on the recycle bin, and set the
    percentage on your media drive to less than 2%.
    There a several other possible causes as well, but you
    need to supply some info about your system. How are you
    capturing and what format is your video? How big is
    your hard drive?
    Jeff Schell - 09:57am Apr 17, 2003 Pacific (#2 of 2)   
    this is one of my favorite error messages. Basically,
    you've chosen an incorrect setting in your DV settings.
    (Odds are you have DV settings). If so, read on:
    1. The DV format is very rigid. Meaning that if you
       make changes to the format, it cannot export as
       requested, because your movie file must match every
       single spec exactly.
    2. When Premiere goes to export a project, the DV codec
       says "Whoa. I can't do anything, because the settings
       don't match."
    3. Then Premiere comes back to you and has to report an
       error. (Don't shoot the messenger). Unfortunately,
       Premiere doesn't know why it wasn't able to export a
       movie. So it says to you, "Um... I can't make the movie.
       Um... maybe your hard drives are full?"
    It's a complete guess. And has nothing to do with your harddrives.
    Check your project settings and/or your export settings. Make
    sure you have chosen one of the "presets" that will specify
    every correct setting for you. Make sure it is one of the DV
    presets, if you are using DV video, or make sure it is one of
    the presets supplied by your capture card manufacturer (in this
    case I'm going to guess Pinnacle or Matrox.)
    To choose a preset, go to Project > Settings Viewer, and then
    click on the project settings column, and then click 'load' to
    load a correct preset. Do the same with export settings.

  • Why am I getting a "Disk Full" error message when attempting to export?

    I am trying to export my movie at large quality or higher and every time it gives me a "disk full" error. However, I was able to successfully export it at medium quality. I don't understand why I would be getting that error though because both my internal hard drive and external drive, which I am exporting from (but onto the internal), have ample amount of space to accommodate for a large or HD quality video. Any help would be much appreciated!

    How much space do you have?


    I was getting the message "scatch disk full" so I went and got a brand new external drive.
    In Preferences, the only box I have checked for CS5 to use as the scratch disk is the new external drive.
    That the external drive is solely being used by CS5 has solved the scratch disk full problem, but...........
    Apparently my C: drive is still being used somehow because now I get a warning that it is dangerously running low on space.
    I assume that if the new external drive/scratch disk was tapped out, I would get the same old original message "scratch disk full".
    What is going on here? Why so much need for space when the new external has 300gb dedicated solely to CS5?
    If CS5 is using the external drive as a scratch disk, then what is it using an additional 35gb of space for on the drive that has my operating system?
    I have 15gb of pagefile/swapfile space set aside on C:
    Neither the 15gb pagefile, nor the 35gb of free space should be getting consummed.
    I can understand that they would be used somewhat, for purposes that any program would use them for, but consuming them I do not understand.
    Thanks for your help

    Mr. Joslin,
    I tried using Photomerge and then the ruler tool to create 360 degree panoramas comprised of 23 images.
    Photomerge stitching works good enough but is a nuisance when it comes to getting the 1st image that starts the panorama to be on the left.
    Then comes the ruler tool which levels the panoramas horizon just fine but crops the hell out of 'em.
    I have not been able to figure out how to prevent the excessive cropping of the left and right sides.
    I'm talking way, way, way more cropping than is needed, and my panoramas barely need any leveling to begin with.
    They are practically horizontal, as is, after being merged.
    So I have been trying to work out other approaches such as placing images right were I want them.
    If I can place each image right were I want it, perfectly horizontal, then I can eliminate the use of the ruler tool and thus its excessive cropping.
    Other people have suggested using PTAssembler instead of Photoshop.
    That sounds worthy of a try but I have totally been sided tracked trying to solve my disk usage issues.
    So side tracked that when you asked your question, I had to stop and think "that's right, what am I going through all this for?"
    Anyway, I need to someday place the panoramas into a astronomical program called Voyager 4.5 which has stringent requirements.
    The dimensions of the images placed therein have to have proportions of 2:1.
    That being twice as wide as they are high, in other words, 360 degrees wide by 180 degrees high.
    2:1 is the same dimensions as a sphere, the earth.
    The equater is 360 degrees, while from north pole to south pole is 180 degrees.
    I used a 105mm lense to shoot the images, so thus the reason why the 360 degree/equater spans approximately 60,000 pixles.
    That my panoramas are so wide, but merely a little over 2,000 pixles high has forced me to create a canvas to place the images on that is huge.
    Ultimately what I need to be placing in the Voyager program is an alpha layer that is 2:1.
    A layer whose pixles above the horizon are transparent, Voyager being astronomical requiring the sky to be visible.
    When placed, it will look like you are standing in your own backyard, or anywhere else for that matter, how about Stonhenge.
    I know this is more than you bargained for when you asked why "such large pixel dimensions", but maybe I can ellicite further suggestions.
    Suggestions besides my disk usage issues.

  • Disk full and can't see why in Finder.  Just installed eyeTV

    I am a fairly new Mac user.  I had loads of disk space on my Mac Book Pro, and installed EyeTV Diversity.  After watching TV for a couple of hours (not recording anything) I got a disk full message.  I've used Finder, but can't find where the problem is.  I deinstalled EyeTV s/w, but the Mac HD still says its very close to full.  The EyeTv s/w problem say it's not their fualt!  Somehow some large part of the disk is now unavail and I can't see where or how to fix it.  I now have a paper due and can't do anything. Plse help!

    Dear Linc,
    Great advice, I downloaded and successfully used OmniDiskSweeper, and found a large log file, presumably from the EyeTV s/w and deleted it.  The counts of disk space etc. seemed to reset themselves without a repair. Haven't found out why the EyeTV s/w does this but at least my MBP is all OK now. Many many thanks.
    Thanks one and all for trying to help, and for doing so, so very quickly.  It's nice to know we newby users can get help.  Restores one's faith in human nature.

  • Why am I getting disk full error writing to usb drive?

    I am trying to save my altered images on an USB drive. I keep getting an error message "disk full".
    I am using Photoshop version 7 on a Windows 7 64bit.

    Another likely source of problem, test each drive individually first before you create your RAID, make sure they all show near identical performance in benchmark testing, and they are the same firmware.
    Even zeroing the drives and comparing times for how long it takes can give some indication. AMUG and Barefeats probably have some reviews, benchmarks, and links to various test utilities.
    Sonnet recommends that if you use WD drives that they be RE/RE2 and not SE series.
    You can find even other brand models where drives vary enough to be an issue and cause a drive to time out on an I/O request.
