Exclamation Problem generating catalog - help! ><


For some reason a few days ago I started having trouble generating ePub catalogs in Calibre. This happened after I left it running overnight to create a particularly big catalog. Previously I just made separate catalogs for each author in small bunches.

Does anyone know how I can fix this??

Thanks in advance!!! ^^

Error details below:
