I started to work with ArcGIS 10.1 months ago, and recently started to work with precipitacion images and want to perform a task that usually I used to do with ArcView 3.x which is convert a satellite image (.bill format) to Grid. Everytime i try to do this in ArcMap or ArcCatalog 10.1 it gives me the same error: Failed to save dataset. I uninstalled and installed the ArcGIS, desactivated the antiviris, ckecked my licenses but the problem persist. Can you please help me?
I'm guessing (as is Dan) that you are not following the naming rules.
Has I wrote to Dan.I'm working in a folder which I have created just to save the grid images and has enough space. And still the problem persists. I have looked to naming rules but still.
I don't know what to do now.
copy the filename and path so we can have a look at it...you would be amazed at the number of times people have said everything is fine ... and it isn't. Also, I hope you aren't saving to a usb drive (causes issues some times) and you did this process after closing arcmap, restarting and starting a new project...set your analysis properties, scratch workspace etc etc. It is the little things that are the problem usually, not the software
