Getting an unknown error related to mkdir?

(Phil Mayfield) #1

Just started happening today for me. I’ve tried force clearing the cache (got a different error) and uninstalling and reinstalling Node/npm. Any help would be appreciated :slight_smile:

Unhandled rejection Error: UNKNOWN: unknown error, mkdir 'C:\Users\philm\AppData\Roaming\npm-cache\_cacache\content-v2\sha512\e6\72'

So I appear to have fixed my problem. Posting what I did for posterity.

I tried uninstalling node and manually deleting the npm and npm-cache folders found in %AppData%. I noticed that even with an elevated bash and rm -rf there were files in the cache folder that would not delete. I ended up running chkdsk on the drive:

chkdsk C: /f /r /x

Booted back into windows and I could then delete the folder, reinstall node and things appear to be working again. I might have been able to just get away with the chkdsk in hindsight.
