Two issues have come up related to the default workspace settings within ArcToolbox. To access these settings, right-click inside ArcToolbox, select Environments, and click on the Workspace drop-down.
Specific to each error:
  • ERROR 010032 (eg., "Step1HydroProcessing DEMs 010032: Unable to create the scratch grid") is a permissions error – the user doesn't have the necessary permissions to write files to the default workspaces that are selected by ArcToolbox. There is specific help information on this error at:
  • ERROR 000303 (eg., "Step 2 Stream and Watershed Delineation, 000303: Field FID does not exist") occurs because the default current and scratch workspaces in ArcGIS are set as geodatabases. This happens by default when you install ArcGIS. A scratch database is created at C:\Users\[user]\Documents\ArcGIS\Default.gdb and all temporary files are written here unless otherwise specified. If users go into their workspace settings and change both output locations to a non-geodatabase directory, this error should be resolved. The input files can come from a geodatabase without a problem.
