 [DEBUG] [11/28/2011 07:49:22.375] [1096] [ZenworksWindowsService] [5] [] [ZenCache] [] [(Thread 5) Call to PutObject threw an exception: The file exists.
   at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)

Resolution

Check the system %TEMP% folder (typically defined as %SYSTEMROOT%\temp sysfor excessive numbers of files.  According to Microsoft:
 
 
Only the lower 16 bits of the uUnique parameter are used. This limits GetTempFileName to a maximum of 65,535 unique file names if the lpPathName and lpPrefixString parameters remain the same.
