    Data extract drive mapping/temp space problem

    Ted Corbett

      I am using Beta 9 and trying to create an extract from a fairly large SQL table (~12M records).  Originally I had the desktop tool installed on the C: drive and selected to save my extract to my F drive in the wizard (where there is actually space, the C drive is near full. )  I received this error message


      Tableau Data Engine Error: 4: There is not enough space on the disk.

      DataFile::Write(path="C:\Users\ADMINI~1\AppData\Local\Temp\tmp7AC.tmp\Extract\Extract\NAME.data", limit=65536)

      Unable to create extract


      I thought perphaps it was the split of drives so I uninstalled Desktop from C: and reinstalled on F: to take the data and extract on the same drive.  I received the same error.


      Is there a way to get Tableau to not use the C: drive in the temp step but instead use the F: drive?  Any thoughts?


      Let me know if you have questions.
