Dear experts,
How can I make available space to run the current job on the Linux PC by deleting the unnecessary files? I am working on Gaussian-09 jobs of Structure- Energy calculation. It gives insufficient space to run the jobs. how to solve the problem?

I wonder if it's disk space or RAM. In both cases it might help to just install more (more RAM, a bigger hard disk). If it's RAM, then install a 64-bit version of Linux also.

If it's disk space, delete the files you don't need. You surely know how to delete a file, and nobody here knows what files you have and which of those you don't need.

Running a virtual Linux PC in the cloud might be another option, if it's for one time.

Space?

Nod to prior discussion at https://www.researchgate.net/post/How-to-increase-mem-in-gaussian09 where a few issues are raised. Remember I take it you are an advanced user and will know how to find, install a 64 bit version, know how to set which drive to place files and all this app's settings such as noted at http://gohom.win/ManualHom/Gaussian/G09W/help/jobs.htm
