mysqldump failing

Recommended Posts

I am using mysql 4.1.5 on a Windows XP box. Up until a few weeks ago I was able to dump all of our databases, but the number of tables in our databases has grown to the point where it fails before it can get through a database... I get these errors:

mysqldump: Got error 1105: File'.\file_name.MYD' not found (Errcode:24) when using LOCK TABLES.


mysqldump: Got error 1017: Can't Find File'.\file_name.frm' not found (Errcode:24) when using LOCK TABLES.

the second warning occurs with the table immediately following the one that trips the first error.

I'm pretty sure that it just has to do with the number of tables (currently 1093 tables in the database I'm attempting to dump).

I think I had run into this problem before and modified the my.ini file to fix it but I can't seem to figure out the right variable to set... any ideas?
