No space left on device

I have recently been getting the following error every time I try to edit a book's details.

calibre, version 0.8.47
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>IOError</b>:[Errno 28] No space left on device

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\metadata\single.py", line 458, in accept
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\metadata\single.py", line 432, in apply_changes
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\metadata\basic_widgets.py", line 1026, in commit
File "site-packages\calibre\library\database2.py", line 1107, in set_cover
File "site-packages\calibre\utils\magick\draw.py", line 112, in save_cover_data_to
IOError: [Errno 28] No space left on device


It was giving me an error message saying either the hard disk is full or the database is full. The HDD was pretty full but I've now cleared quite a bit of space & now I'm just getting the above error message.

I have about 5,500 books in my library but I thought I could have a lot more.

Can anybody help me? Please!

Kind regards
Larry

I had a similar problem with Linux because of the way Calibre moves the books around. The books are all copied to a temporary directory and then they are all copied from the temporary directory to the new location. I had to format a new 15GB partition and use the partition as a tmp directory. Calibre is the only program that has ever overloaded my ~700MB tmpfs tmp directory.

EDIT2: I wonder if Calibre is overloading your temp directory when you edit the details and the temp directory is causing your disk overload. That is what caused my IO ERROR and that looked the same as yours.

EDIT: you can also change the temp directory as shown here:

Thx for your reply.

Unfortunately I haven't got a clue what you're talking about!
All way above my head.

I need help like "Delete everything & start again" - basic stuff like that.
