I'm using GDAL 3.3.1 on Windows 10 through Anaconda. I'm trying to convert a TIMESAT binary file to a .tif, which I've been able to do before. However, when I enter this code:

gdal_translate -of GTiff C:\timesat33\run\01 corners\01tl\01tlamp_season1 01tlamp_season1.tif

I get the error message

ERROR 6: Too many command options '01tlamp_season1.tif'

followed by a list of usage options. I'm not sure why this isn't working, since this code worked for a different file:

gdal_translate -of GTiff C:\timesat33\run\1315sos_season1 1315sos_season1.tif

Why do I get this error?

    The spaces in the path are the issue. Is the first input C:\timesat33\run\01 or C:\timesat33\run\01 corners\01tl\01tlamp_season1??

  • @MikeT That worked! Thank you, I wasn't aware that spaces aren't allowed in Anaconda.

This was said by Mike T in the comments, but I can't add that as the answer to the post. The issue was the space in ...\run\01 corners\..., and has been remedied by changing it to ...\run\01corners\....

    It should work also as gdal_translate -of GTiff "C:\timesat33\run\01 corners\01tl\01tlamp_season1" 01tlamp_season1.tif.
