Mri_normalize: could not open source file /out/freesurfer/sub-110/mri/T2.prenorm.mgz


Hello experts,
I am keep getting following error. I am copying the last paragraph from: recon-all.log. below for your references and I am using docker-in linux. I am wondering if this is due to memory or something else ? If this is a memory related issues, how can i increase the allocated memory to docker ?
