Eos Family Failure to Save Show File

My console is giving me the error "Unable to Save to Persistent Storage"

 If you want to have a fuller set of logs for analysis, save the logs before deep clearing. The persistent storage files are purged otherwise.

Problem

My console is giving me an error saying that it is "Unable to save to persistent storage".
Make sure that you are first able to save and back up your information to a USB flash drive before proceeding.

Solution

  1. If you are able to successfully save your show file to a USB, you can proceed to the next steps.
    1. Exit to the Shell of your console by going to Exit
    2. Click on Settings > Maintenance > Deep Clear
    3. After the process is complete, simply click on Accept and then Primary
    4. Try reloading your show file from the USB drive and try doing a Save As onto the Show File Archive
    5. If it has completed successfully, you are all good to go
  2. If you are unable to save to a USB flash drive or if the steps above did not resolve the issue:
    1. Contact ETC Technical Support as you may have failing hardware in your console
    2. Make sure to have the Serial Number of your console ready before contacting ETC.

Versions 1.9.12 and Higher

If you run into an Ion or Eos that is failing to save the show, it may be possible to recover the show from persistent storage.  Save logs from the console, which will contain the persistent storage files from the console since at least version 1.4.0. Exit to the shell, click on settings, then maintenance, and finally Save Logs to begin the process. Please send the log files to Eos@etcconnect.com -- please note that this redirects to the US Service box (ETC Inc).

Versions prior to 1.9.12

In versions 1.9.12 and higher, when a problem is encountered, some additional steps are taken to save directly from memory rather than the persistent storage files.
