Suddenly carriewave has been saving all my versions to the root of my rails app with the image dimensions as the filename. Each one is the full size image.

I tried both downgrading to 0.5.4, and the latest version of carrierwave-mongoid. It happens with either so it would seem its an issue with carrierwave.

Has anyone ever seen this?

Additionally, this is only happening in production. I am unable to reproduce this locally...

Hello, I have exactly the same issue, starting a new project with Carrierwave v.0.8.0, in development mode.

Did not happen with Carrierwave v.0.7.1.

This is weird -- can somebody reproduce it with an app and share it here so I can take a look?

I think it was an issue with the following configuration :
ruby v1.9.2-p180 / mini_magick v.3.5.0. (

I solved the issue using the two following configs :

  • ruby v1.9.2-p180 / mini_magick v3.4
  • ruby v1.9.3-p415 / mini_magick v3.5.0

If anyone is having this issue and is not running 1.9.2-p180, feel free to report back so we can look into this further.
