If the system detects that the storage capacity will exceed its limit, the export process is terminated and the message “Fail (Save folder is full.)” is logged in the status column for the respective export schedule.

To resolve this issue, perform one or more of the following options:

  • Increase the size limit by deleting old exported files.
  • Reduce the number of exported schedule files in the destination folder.
  • Modify the Date/Time settings to reduce the size of the export schedule file.
