If you change your windows temp directory location to be on your D: drive that should solve it.
I have a vague recollection that there may also be a specific environment variable you can set to tell Tableau where to put it's temp files - but a forum search didn't find anything and I may be confusing it with another product...
Does File | Repository Location ... work for this. You will get a file navigation dialog that you can use to either make a new folder or use an existing folder for the Tableau Repository, which is where Tableau puts extracts by default, I think. You will have to quit and restart Tableau to start using the new location. I have not tried this, but it is worth exploring?
In the mean time,
Peace and All Good!

I'm fairly sure I remember that there are temporary files outside the repository - which go in the Windows temp directory. Explicitly choosing a location for the extract from the create extract dialog, or moving the repository or moving Documents and Settings (which is where the repository lives by default) all achieve the same thing - but don't solve the temp space issue.
I think I had an email from support explaining all this once - I'll see if I can dig it out...
Edit: the support email I was thinking of was about where Firebird put it's temporary files (back in version 5 days before the data engine). So maybe I've been confusing this issue with that one.
It still could be worth trying the WIndows TEMP setting, or moving the repository as Michael suggests.
Yaah, now I am not sure my suggestion does it. Anyone, anyone from the Tableau Team?
Looking for an answer to this as well. We're pulling PDFs and I would like to save them to a server location instead of a users drive.
Change the Windows User Variables TMP and TEMP to the location you want to have the temporary files. Note that this will force all applications that use this variable to use the new location you set.
I'm encountering the same error. The volume my TMP/TEMP directory is on has over 260GB of free space...I'm runing Tableau v7, Windows XP SP3, NTFS...there is no logical reason why anything is running out of storage space. I checked the other threads and no suggestions there worked.
I have yet to see a response from Tableau on this, any other ideas?
"Tableau Data Engine Error: 4: Not enough storage is available to process this command.
- (MapViewOfFileEx: offset=0 mapping_size=5701632)
Unable to create extract"
Thanks for any suggestions.
Hi all, any thoughts on this. Still expereincing this problem. When I create an extract, I make the extract's location on the desktop and this drive has over 90 Gigs available.

Sometimes the page limit and data limit have higher or lower amounts. Could really use some thoughts on this because our SQL Server just cannot handle the processing on this.
