Bridge CS6:  Output to Web or PDF - insufficient disk space..

Jan 3, 2013 5:23 AM

Tags: #bridge_cs6_mac #output_to_web_or_pdf

I have recently installed the CS6 cloud version of Bridge, but now get this error when trying to produce (or refresh) a contact sheet using Output to Web or PDF - There is insufficient disk space to complete this operation

 

The error occurs no matter what the file size is, or if multiple of single files are selected - and as the sole application open. I'm running the application in OS X 10.8, with 8GB of RAM and 512MB of VRAM, so disk space doesn't seem to be the issue?

 

I've just installed the lastest Bridge update, but this has made no difference. Thanks for your feedback in advance..

    My first guess would be a permission problem accessing the drive.

    This has nothing to do with disk space. Having 8 GB of Ram should be more then satisfying and 512 MB meets the minimum required amount of VRAM.

     

    Can you report back the size of your HD and the free space left on this?

     

    And did you run Apple Disk utility to check and repair permissions.

     

    Also try restarting Bridge holding down option key and choose reset preferences.

    It seems to be a network conflict

     

    Cross posting, just received this while sending the other. Bridge is not designed for working over a network, some get it to work. others don't.

    I've found an old post which highlights a USERS folder conflict?

     

    Without any significant knowledge about working over a network I do know Bridge uses a Cache file on a user related base. So it might be possible it confuses the two folders if you have both company and private network based on the same user name.

     

    But as said, just a wild guess. If you need to work over a network try the blog from the Image Archivist, he also used to hang around here in the past:

    Yup, using a mac, turned off my wireless then reset bridge preferences and it fixed it for me
