Incremental Refresh Fails but Full Refresh Successful

Hi we have a Power BI Dataflow which contains 1 minute interval data from a sql server database.  Occasionally the incremental refresh will fail with the Error: PipelineException: There is not enough space on the disk error. 

 

However when i turn incremental refresh off it runs successfully. 

 

We hoped incremental refresh would improve the refresh time but does the way it occurs on the server that the gateway is on differ from how a full refresh runs causing it to fail?

Hi @higgy7 

1. Make sure the disk where the gateway installed has enough available space.

2. The Mashup Engine stores caching files in your user appData local directory - i.e., not necessarily the drive where you installed PowerBI Desktop.

You should make sure there is enough space on your user folder as well (and there isn't a quota on it).

You can also check your cache size by going to Options -> Global -> Data Load -> Data Cache Management Options

 

There have been similar problems before, you can refer to
