    We still have this issue in latest version 5.3.3 f1. Our sharedassets0.assets file is around 5.9GB. What is the working max size now?

    I had the exact same problem and the culprit in my case was that the free space on my C drive was about 60MB. Deleting files and increasing the free space did the trick.

    This just hit me when I upgraded to the latest version of Unity, except the project does compile. I've yet to test whether anything is broken on the compiled executable.

    Whatever you are doing, please revert this unintended regression.

    Unity! You guys have fixed so many of the issues I initially encountered with U5, but this one is just too much to bear. Please get this fixed ASAP since as was pointed out in another comment, this is a company breaker. Devolve our scenes? No... this is a bug that would require MANY hours to work around (if the workaround even worked) and you have already said you know the problem is there and have plans to fix it. PLEASE ACCELERATE this topic. Way too many of us are stuck!

    I also got this error when building a very large asset bundle. But later I noticed that I didn't have room on my hard drive, cleared some space, and didn't get the error again.

    Its not the disk space. At least not in our case. We built a workaround by manually packing stuff into asset bundles but this has two disadvantages:
    It is unhandy and takes ages + the unpacking of the bundles at runtimes causes massive hiccups. So it is not suitable for us.
