"The table 'hd_ticket' is full" message is a MySQL error message. Help??

I have a "help desk" application running on a Windows 2008 server, with IIS7.

Just yesterday, tickets stopped going into the system.  I emailed the developers of the application and they wrote back to me with the following:


I tried sending in a new ticket via email, and when I clicked Run next to your parsed email account, I received this error:

"Email xxx@xxxxxxx.com NOT parsed as a ticket post! Error: save-ticket The table 'hd_ticket' is full"

The "The table 'hd_ticket' is full" message is a MySQL error message.There may be some type of setting that is restricting the size of your MySQL database or table.


The table  "hd_ticket" in the MySQL database has the following:

Engine:   InnoDB
Rows:   1704
Data length:  1.5MB
Index length:  592kb

Additional Info about the databases:

Number of tables:  194
Rows:  205,865
Data len:  293.1MB
Index len:  163.0MB

Also note:
The Server has more than enough Hard Drive space.  (More than 75GB on all drives).
The Drives are formatted using NTFS.
Some of the tables are set to InnoDB and some are set to  MyISAM, but mostly InnoDB.

How can I fix this issue?  Can I allow for more space?  (If so, how, etc.)??

HainKurtSr. System AnalystCommented:

it may be that the disk is full or that the table has reached its maximum size. The effective maximum table size for MySQL databases is usually determined by operating system constraints on file sizes, not by MySQL internal limits


Operating System File-size Limit
Win32 w/ FAT/FAT32 : 2GB/4GB
Win32 w/ NTFS : 2TB (possibly larger)

is there any limit/quota on user or folder on operating system which mysql runs?

do you have anything on your ini file like this (my.cnf)

innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:10M:autoextend:max:128M

sorry, what is the solution :) I just sent information about size/limits...
