Unable to close output stream with exception Disk quota exceeded error

y.songy.song Seoul, KoreaMember

Using MuTect to detect somatic mutations from cancer samples, the process was ongoing without any problems with the options below. The version of MuTect is 1.1.7 and reference sequence is hg19 from UCSC.

java -Djava.io.tmpdir./scratch -Xmx4g -jar mutect-1.1.7.jar --analysis_type MuTect --reference_sequence ucsc.hg19.fasta --cosmic b37_cosmic_v54_convert_ucsc_hg19.vcf --dbsnp dbsnp_132_b37.leftAligned_convert_ucsc_hg19.vcf --input_file:normal N2_dupRemoved_realigned_fixed_recalib.bam --input_file:tumor C2_dupRemoved_realigned_fixed_recalib.bam --out call_stats_GC2.out --coverage_file coverage_GC2.wig.txt --vcf GC2_out.vcf

However after finishing whole process, 'INFO 22:07:22,567 Walker - [REDUCE RESULT] Traversal result is: 0' was on the terminal but the error message below was shown right after that.

ERROR MESSAGE: Couldn't write file /Mutation/coverage_GC2.wig.txt because Unable to close output stream with exception Disk quota exceeded

I also used another sample to find any other errors but same error was occurred. Does it the problem from lack of memory? Please let me know if you have any specific solution.

Thanks in advance,

Yura Caroline Song.
