Subject: Re: PROC SORT/ No disk space available for the write operation
That should be no problem between 9.1 and 9.2. However you might have your
work-directory on another disk which is smaller (or already full) that the
9.1 one. Have a look where saswork is located and check the disk-space.
It seems to be on c:, normally a local disk. Most installations I know
have rather small partitions for system files on c: and have a big one (or
more) for data, sometimes d: or e: or...
If you are on the same hardware with 9.1 AND 9.2, maybe you kept the 9.1
installation alive (or dead) and added 9.2. That might be a show-stopper.
Or you removed 9.1 and 9.2 simply needs more space for the installation?
A solution might be to buy a new harddisk. Disk space is not expensive.
