File-output errors and stops after saving 127 images

Postby edog » Mon Dec 10, 2012 9:05 pm

Running an image capture @ 120s interval.

Plenty of space on drive.

Saves 127 images then I get a pop-up:
Error...
Could not save file D:\\filename_{date}_tstamp}.jpg
Check that the directory really exists! (If not, please edit your settings...)
[OK]

Delete one image, turn file-output back on, will save one image and crash on the 128th. Seems like something hard coded...

- Thanks in advance,
edog

In your path, can you double-check that you don't have "\\" and that you don't have "_tstamp}", or at least make sure it has the opening bracket to look like {tstamp}.

Checked the path and I did have two '\' instead of one... funny that it didn't error there.

Just a typo on the '_timestamp}' on the post it is now: 'D:\{date}_{tstamp}.jpg' for testing.

Reset to 1 second intervals for testing and it bombs out when trying the 171st file. :?

well, it's definitely not a problem on my end, I use 1s interval and have reached over 700,000 images at one point and it was still working. Perhaps the drive is full? There might be a quota on the drive/folder?

Harking back to the MS-DOS days (use to see this with floppies). There was a 127 file limit for the root of a drive. Sub directories(folders) can have an unlimited number of files.

Try saving to D:\some folder\filename_{date}_tstamp}.jpg
