Just had a failure for a "disk limit exceeded"

Might be a bad bunch of tasks. My wingmen haven't finished it yet to verify.

Guess not. One wingman finished it with no issues. Could have been an issue where the previous task wasn't cleared from the slot.

Boinc wiki says error code 196 means:

ERR_WU_USER_RULE -196

BOINC tries to send the client this result and fails because:

result needs more disk/mem/speed than host has
already sent a result for this WU
no app_version available

https://boinc.mundayweb.com/wiki/index.php?title=Error_code_-191_to_-200_explained

Maybe that comes down to lack of free drive space I don't know but to me that makes sense.

Just got another one. https://universeathome.pl/universe/result.php?resultid=103412303
I have no limit on disk space other than leave 42GB free. The Manager Disk tab shows 12GB in use but 21GB available for use.
I think the project admins set a wrong value for expected disk space usage for the task and it exceeded the set task parameters.

Task only used peak 390MB of disk space.

Yes, I got one too on an Ubuntu machine though it worked OK on a Windows machine.
