Error loading sample data

Hello,

I am getting the following error - An error occured loading sample data: Target cluster does not have enough free space to import dataset

How to get more free space?

Are you sure that you’ve created an empty free cluster? The size of sample data is around 325MB, and the space available in a free cluster is 500MB

I followed the directions to create a new cluster. I also had a cluster from another class there. I tried to delete it but get the same error.

thanks for your reply!!

Hi @mactech6,

Please create a new Project followed by creating a new cluster instead of using the old one.

I got the same error.

Please post a screenshot of the action you are performing that shows the error you are getting.

I deleted the cluster and recreated. Now sample dataset got loaded.
Thanks

Hi, I was trying to connect to sanbox using mongo shell.
not sure where is that i have to paste the connection string

If you are using Mac, its terminal and if its windows, its command line/prompt.

Hi Kanika

Im using atlas to connect to cluster using the mongo shell. Are you using Atlas. The course says we don’t need to download any software.

I have not downloaded mongodb in my machine.

Thanks

Its not mandatory. You can click on “Connect -> Connect through application -> NodeJS”

choose your connection string and use it in “.env” file.
