Re: IDXFILEFULL, index file is full

Years later (2015) and 28 years after my application went live, I got this message today.  Fortunately, if you have many files that are no longer needed, all you need to do is delete them.  In fact, I deleted a few text files and the message (and problem) went away.  Since that "proof of solution" I have deleted over 100,000 old transaction files that I was keeping around for potential troubleshooting reasons.  I expect I won't see the message again anytime soon.

 

Thanks to all of the helpful posters here!
