I am a GIS Analyst with a modest background in archaeology, computer science and general electronic tinkering. I generally know enough to get in way over my head and then work my way back out.

comment How to avoid creating corrupt Shapefiles during Editing?
I've also had this error crop up while editing shapefiles. My work around was just to do my editing in ArcMap. Obviously that's not a real solution - but - you aren't alone in experiencing this kind of error.

comment Find Direction/Location of point in polygon using Python ArcGIS10.1
If the point is always located inside of the polygon then the centroid could still be used pretty reliably I think. Even when the centroid falls outside of the polygon itself, the relationship between the contained point and the centroid could still identify which 'quadrant' the point is in. It really only becomes an issue in cases when the point falls outside of the polygon.

comment Arcmap fills up full image
The error showing up seems to further indicate that there is a problem with your shapefile. Assuming that it's a shapefile and not a feature class. You could try exporting it to a new copy and trying to run the tool on that. Also, you could start an editing session and look for any weirdness in the vertices of the polygons. If it's a feature class I'd start by compacting/repairing the database. Another thing to try is to turn off background processing, sometimes taking things out of the background gets the tool to run, especially with unspecified errors like this one.
