Error: Could not allocate space for object 'dbo.SORT temporary run storage: XXXXX' in database 'tempdb' because the 'PRIMARY' filegroup is full - when running an export

When attempting to run an Export process the following error may appear: Could not allocate space for object '<XXXX>' in database 'tempdb' because the 'PRIMARY' filegroup is full. Create disk space by deleting unneeded files, dropping objects in the filegroup, adding additional files to the filegroup, or setting autogrowth on for existing files in the filegroup
Please create a new export definition, and that should resolve the issue. If that does not resolve the issue, please try using a smaller query with less records.
