First, the obvious. Did you look to make sure that your disc wasn't actually full?

Secondly, I see in your signature that you are running BIAB 2016, so I presume you are running RealBand 2016 also? Jeff made some changes in v2018, because it did not properly support the full 260 character Microsoft limit for pathname+filename (it was instead 128). So, if an earlier version, you might want to try a path closer to the root of the drive.

Also, if you tried to move files to one of the Windows protected folders, Windows will sometimes keep you from doing so (but I wouldn't think it would be a disc full message).

Give us more details and maybe we can figure it out.

Thank you John, I've not updated my biab info , I'm running 2018. I thought if I changed the folder to another drive( your spot on disc is full lol) it would work. As yet it hasn't but I will try again soon. Thanks for the advice , appreciate it
Cheers brad

Does the newly selected drive have enough room for the seq file?
(they can get big) .. maybe neither drive has enough room.

One option to free up some disk space:
RB creates a backup folder and makes a backup there when you make changes or save any files.

Look at your Realband backups folder and see if you can do some cleanup to free up some room.

Not sure if moving files would affect this at all, and there are settings to contain how many backups it keeps (in Options-Prefs). I have some drives where RB only has less than a gig of backups, but other drives have over 4 gig.
Thought I'd mention.

/The only reason I have multiple backup folders is because I manually made this happen, for most users there will be just one RBBackup folder located wherever you have Realband installed (likely C:).

Of course simply Emptying the Recycle Bin in Windows can regain lots of room on disks if not tended to regularly!

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!


#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".


Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
