I'm working on a short film and it's due in a day. When I tested it if could export what I had so far it kept showing "Unable to write/create files" and I have no idea what's causing it. I'm using a free program so the options for me are only exporting youtube vimeo and h264 which all of them I tried. I tried saving it in every folder available but all the folders I can choose from start with a c:/. Could that maybe be the problem? It's really urgent for me someone please help! Thank you so much.

Hello,

Please check free space on your system drive. It should be at least twice the estimated export size plus some additional Gigabytes for Windows.

Hello thank you so much for replying.

I checked and there's 54.9 GB left in my local disk, I'm sure that's more than enough for a two minute long video.

This problem is very uncommon. It indicates either low drive drive space or missing access permission.

Have you ever been able to export anything?

Unfortunately this is my first time using Lightworks and I have not tried exporting before.

Is this the Windows user account under which you currently started Lightworks?

Do you have another drive with unrestricted write access?
Edit: Or create a new test folder with the path
C:\test\
and try to export there.

Your operating system has information for you that you haven't read yet. Is there anything written about denied access?

For anyone else finding this, to select the location to save to then click on "Places" in the export dialogue. You will then be given choices up to ten of the most recently used locations plus all the local and network drives you have available. If you click on a drive you will then be able to choose any folder in that drive.
