"Could not read all configuration files" error on Mikrotik

If when trying to do a backup on a Mikrotik router and you get this error in the terminal and log: "backup,critical error creating backup file: could not read all configuration files" The fix is to simply regenerate your SSH key with this command: /ip ssh regenerate-host-key

Mikrotik lack of space or full drive and the fix

This one is a tricky bug that I've ran into. If you hit this, when you go to Files, you will see much more used space than what you're using. Often not enough unused space to upgrade. Here's how to fix it. You need the fix_space.npk file. It's currently hosted here: I mirrored it here if it disappears: Use it like a normal upgrade. Just put/drag it into your files then reboot your Mikrotik router. After the reboot you'll see your free space is normal.
