Good day,

I am having a peculiar response from the ArcMap 9.2 with respect to georeferencing/ rectifying .tif images. For the past couple of weeks I have been georeferencing .tif images and rectifying them. However, yesterday evening after working perfectly for the entire morning, when I georeferenced an image and tried to rectify it, and error message "Failed to Save Raster dataset" appeared.

Georeferencing and rectifying previously rectified images produced the same error, and this morning the program now gives a message "Failed to build pyramids" when adding .tiff images to ArcMap. Pretty strange to me- seemed to happen 'out of the blue', and I have not seen any threads on this, so the guidance is lacking.

Any answers on why this may be happenning will be greatly appreciated as I am on a pretty tight deadline.
