Extract reference reads- tmp

Dear, I hope you are well. When I run the following command:
qiime feature-classifier extract-reads
--i-sequences silva-138-99-515-806-nb-classifier.qza
--p-min-length 100
--p-max-length 400
--o-reads PE-ref-seqs.qza

I get this error:
(1/1) Invalid value for '--i-sequences': There was not enough space left on
'/tmp' to extract the artifact 'silva-138-99-515-806-nb-classifier.qza'.
(Try setting $TMPDIR to a directory with more space, or increasing the size
of '/tmp')

How could you solve this problem?

Hello @Wen,

It looks like you have ran out of space for your files. When /tmp is full, you get errors like this:

How much disk space is left on your computer, VM, or server? (Let me know if you need help looking this up... :mag_right: )

If you have a drive with more space, you could set $TMPDIR to that drive and try running the script again.


Dear Colin, thank you very much for answering. I managed to solve the problem by following these indications: No space left on device classifier TMPDIR.
