I am running an advanced simulation using SOL 601/129. I have set up my forces and contraints and the simulation seems to run through and complete fine.
However, when the simulation finishes, the "Results" turns from the rainbow color to a faded out gray and displays that the file is not found (see attached).
Does anyone know why this is happening and how to approach it? I have changed from SORT2/Default to SORT1 which seem to address the problem of the file being the wrong format.
When I check the .f06 file, the fatal error says: FATAL ERROR: SOL 601 DID NOT FINISH SUCCESSFULLY
I have copied the .f06 file error below (will not allow to attach .txt files). I believe the error is coming from a lack of disk space. I have tried different locations to save the files but keep getting the same error.

You run out of disk space in the hard disc unit where the SCRATCH file is located, not in the disc where nastran output results are written; when solving dynamic transient analysis problems to have enough hard disc space always is critical!!
