I'm not getting the new ACEMD workunits because, according to the server, I have 0.00 MB available.

- I have set the BOINC client's permissions to be WIDE open, (ie No disk limits, leave x amount of GB on the BOINC volume... ALL of these are unchecked.)
- I have tried running BOINC as Administrator (I'm running Win10 Pro). No dice.
- I have tried removing the read only permissions in the BOINC data directory. No luck.

the event log says I have 1260GB available for BOINC. I'm at my wit's end here. What am I doing wrong?

Disk limits can be set in two different places. At the project website computing preferences and/or in the Manager under Options >> Computing preferences.

The local preference overrides the project preferences. Look at the Event Log startup and see where the preferences for GPUGrid are being read from.

I've never tried unchecking all 3 boxes. I always check Use at most 80% of drive.
