Export error exp-00002

I am trying to export the data using Oracle's exp command, but it fails to export with the following exception:

 exp-00002: error in writing to export file
 exp-00000: Export terminated unsuccessfully.
The database is Oracle 8.1.7 on Windows NT, and I am running the exp from the windows command.

This error is telling you that the export utility can no longer write to this disk device. This can be caused by a couple of things. The disk device could be full. Or the dump file could exceed a 2 GB file size limit. I've also seen this happen when people try to export to a network attached (mapped) drive and the network connection is not stable enough.
