PDF Export error


Hi all,

Over the last year i developped a filemaker database to manage our projects and invoices. The database runs great except for one thing; exporting pdfs. When i create an invoice, filemaker runs a script that creates a new folder with the customer name and project number. In this folder it wil have to export a pdf from the invoice. This folder is on the same server as where filemaker server hosts the database. Creating the folders is no problem only when it try's to export the pdf to that folder i get the following error:

“Untitled.pdf” could not be created on this disk.  Use a different name, make more room on the disk, unlock it or use a different disk.

At first i thought it had something to do with the permissions on the server so i tried to export in the desktopfolder from the client computer. But that still gives me the same error. I also thought it had something to do with the database being on a server, so i copied the database to the client computer, tried to export to pdf and there's the error again. To make the problem even stranger: sometimes it does export a pdf without any problem....

When i build the database it just worked, after i ran it from a server it didn't. I doesn't matter wich layout i try to export, it almost always gives me an error. I don't know why it does export sometimes. I don't do anything different.

I tried to google this problem to solve it but without any luck so far. Does somebody knows the solution?
