Is this occurring for any raster dataset you try to rectify, or is it just one in particular?
Do you have Service Pack 1 installed?
Are you trying to save the raster dataset to a local or network drive? If the latter, try saving the raster dataset to a local drive you know you have write permissions to.
Using ArcMap 10.1 in XPsp3. I can't rectify a georeferenced image. The procedure returns the erorr: "Failed to save raster dataset". Occurs when trying to generate a .tif or any of the compressed formats.
Almost 8 years later and this reply saved me! ArcGIS Pro does not auto-fill in the raster file type for the Change Detection Wizard so I needed to add the .tif suffix
Yes this is the best solution of using the letters in front of any number. I had the same issue and found this discussion. Recommend posting fix on 10.1 and previous versions boards. Thanks for your help...
Thanks so much for figuring out the name issue. I just spent over an hour trying to figure out why I couldn't rectify a raster dataset. Turns out it was because I was using the year at the beginning of the output name. A more informative error message would be really helpful there.
