Briefly, this error occurs when Elasticsearch is unable to determine the usable or total space on the data paths. This could be due to insufficient permissions, a full disk, or a misconfigured data path. To resolve this issue, you can check and adjust the permissions on the data paths, ensure there is enough disk space, or verify the data path configuration in the Elasticsearch settings. Additionally, you may need to check the health of your hardware as this error can also be caused by a failing disk.
