Failed write file code2? Definition?

  • I'm at work and my Gf calls me to say the power went out. I asked her about the laptops (one for mining and one for plotting). The mining one has resumed but HDD I am plotting now shows this "Failed Write file code2". Any idea if this just means the plotting was interrupted or maybe another issue associated with this. I wasn't home so who knows what happened, but she claims the "power went out" :/

    Using the latest version of the wallet, xplotter.

  • @Vanquish not sure on the spec code but if the plotting was interupted you gona need to delete the plot and start over.

  • @Gibsalot Yeah, I've been down this road too many times now grrr. I've spent 7 days plotting this HDD and I was almost done. Most annoying Shit ever.

  • try running more plot files just smaller ,, i plot everything in 500gig plot files and then just make a smaller plot to fill the last bit of HDD

    @Vanquish If you were using xplotter the plot can be resumed, but you have to do it manually.

  • I'm an idiot so I'm gonna have to figure out how to continue. I read on another thread how to do it so I will attempt it. Do any of you guys have a "restart the plotter for dummies" guide?

    @Vanquish From a command prompt running as administrator, go to:


    Get a directory listing of the drive you were plotting - eg if D: do

    dir d:\plots

    It'll return a filename like: 5860130482017119184_200000000_409600_16384

    The filename indicates everything about the plotfile:


    Then do:

    xplotter_avx -id <burstID> -sn <startNonce> -n <NumberOfNonces> -t <number of threads> -path drive:\plots


    xplotter_avx -id 5860130482017119184 -sn 200000000 -n 409600 -t 7 -path d:\plots

    Replace <number of threads> with the number of CPU threads you want.

  • @haitch Wow, this is great. I will certainly attempt this when I get home later today. Good stuff here, I wish I can help you out as well someday...

    @Vanquish No problem - let us know how it goes.

  • Ok, I'm looking at this now. Tried it a few times and no go. I will keep at it


  • Tried this as well...

    @Vanquish Struggling to read those screenshots, but it looks like you're doing "xplotter: - it needs to be "xplotter_avx"

  • @haitch ok, i will give it shot now

  • Ok, I tried as Administrator and not are the results.

    @Vanquish you're in the wrong directory - do "cd xplotter"

  • @haitch Please show me verbatim on what I'm supposed to type in the command. I still can't get it. Not sure if I'm putting in "cd Xplotter" in the proper place

  • admin

    @Vanquish cd C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\BurstWallet\XPlotter

    Replace <username> with your Windows username

  • My Username is PFW as Administrator on this machine. Check it out
