I tried to convert 1000genomes VCF to plink format using the command lines:
./plink --allow-no-sex --vcf ALL.chr10.phase3_shapeit2_mvncall_integrated_v5a.20130502.genotypes.vcf.gz --make-bed --out chr10
But I had an error:
15970 MB RAM detected; reserving 2047 MB for main workspace. --vcf: 3430k variants complete. Error: File write failure.
I converted chromosomes 11 to Y without error but it is impossible for chromosomes 1 to 10. I have enough place (~800 Go) on my disk.
Thank you for help ! Lenha
