Strange enough. The directory exists and there's enough spaces/inodes?

Restart from scratch. Wipe out spool, history, and overview.
Sorry for these hards words but 2.3.x crash recovery _never_ succeeded
for me, makehistory and the like were just a huge waste of time.
If you want to preserve the spool: That is possible, feel free to ask
And: Upgrade to 2.4.x ASAP.
