Files cannot be written - please check output paths! - error

Recommended Posts

Hey, I'm new to C4D so I still don't know a lot about it. Yesterday I rendered something and it worked out perfectly. But today for some reason I get this error.
I've already tried to change the location (different folders and even different hard drives). I don't know what to do.
(Here are the output settings)

Are you trying to write to an existing file that is already open elsewhere ?

    I don't think so.

    I presume it works if you untick 'save' ?

    Actually I think, the "Output" settings will not matter much here. Way more relevant are probably the settings under "Save".
    Stupid questions:
    Could it be, the target drive is full?
    Is the output path set in Render Settings under "Save" still correct?

     

    Does the output file already exist?

    Is it possible the rights/permissions C4D is running with have changed? I.e. running one day as admin, the other as user.

    Could you try to move the output file out of the way, before rendering?
