Greetings and salutations to all, I have returned from a long hiatus to crunch again only to discover that I have issues with the current series of WU's. The error occurs in my log ,

"2/9/2019 4:07:55 PM | Rosetta@home | Task 6e4b0e7fd95166052a88f46c94a20bb8_0001_fold_SAVE_ALL_OUT_763858_3_0 exited with zero status but no 'finished' file
2/9/2019 4:07:55 PM | Rosetta@home | If this happens repeatedly you may need to reset the project."

Over and over again. I excluded the directory Rosetta and BOINC resided in for virus scanning so I don't think that could be the problem? Although I am not to thrilled about that. I am totally against malware in general and do not wish to harbor it in any capacity. I realize that Rosetta still will grant credit even for failed WU's but from a scientific aspect I hate the idea of shooting blanks that have no meaning. I am all about the science!! Feedback/help appreciated, and thank you.

That will exclude them from the virus scanning, but not necessarily from the real-time protection. So when they start up (or try to access the Internet), the AV may block them. And using FOUR is asking for trouble. They are probably tripping all over each other as they try to inspect the same file or operation.

I use at most one virus scanner, and sometimes not even that. I have had to re-install operating systems more than once because of disk corruption due to AVs, but never due to viruses.

(And if you don't want malware, don't install it. It usually does not install itself.)

I usually do not intentionally install any malware at all intentionally, but I am aware that even the best companies in the world get data breaches and succumb to hackers. Who knows what mischief or havoc they can wreak? And you are correct in stating that for the most part AV companies usually end up causing more trouble than anything. Just by way of a FYI I utilize only one at any given time, been around computers long enough to know that more than that you are absolutely asking for trouble.

Back to the matter at hand thanks for your quick reply to further clarify my earlier statement I excluded the BOINC directories from both On-Demand, and On-Access scanning. The question remains will Rosetta be able to pick up the pieces of these WU's or will they continue to be exiting with zero status?

It could be a bad batch, though I have not seen that recently. I would just abort them and download a new batch. If they continue to be bad, then maybe a hardware problem?
Sometimes errors can be a leading indicator of bad (or overclocked) memory or CPUs, for example. Good luck.

Are the WU failing or are they completing and getting credit?
I think this may be a "heartbeat" timing issue in BOINC. BOINC wakes up periodically and looks for an "I'm alive" finished file. If the application has not created the zero byte file, BOINC thinks it is dead.

I see it in Climate Prediction and I think it is annoying but harmless unless WU are failing.
