GPX Error

I have been printing nonstop recently. Today I have encountered an error.

Every time I try to save the file to an SD card, I receive this error:
"An error was encountered while running the GPX plugin.
The desired binary x3g file was not created."
What can I do?

My computer is a Macbook Pro 2019 running OSX 11.1
My printer is a Flash Forge Creator Pro

Thank you!

Re: GPX Error

This tends to happen if the SD card doesn't have enough space to write the .x3g file.

Can you check what free space there is on the card?

Re: GPX Error

SD cards are not forever and they wear out or can fail. Try another card.

Not using Mac. But I think I remember cases where this error also appeared on Windows
machines when using mapped network drives and running S3D as a different user. Is it
possible there's some kind of access problem with the directory the GPX files are saved to?
