11.1 EDK - Error: "Could not write metadata for: /ppc405_0_sw_platform"

Description

When working with SDK, periodic error message occurs:

"Could not write metadata for: /ppc405_0_sw_platform".

How can I eliminate this message?

Solution

Generally, this error is caused by disk space and file permission issues. Also, this error message might occur if the path length exceeds 260 characters; this is a Windows limitation. The path length also includes the path length under the SDK metadata directory as shown below:

./.plugins/org.eclipse.core.resources/.projects/ppc405_0_sw_platform/.indexes/history.index

The solution is to reduce the path length.
