Compilation ends with some unspecified error

I'm getting unspecified error (see attached screenshot) when compiling my Android project but the project is ok and I can compile it from command line without any problem. It started when I had no space left on my disk (it can happen quite often with small SSD). Idea seems not to count on with such situation - it froze and then started with this error.

I've already tried to:
* invalidate caches
* reimport project
* reinstall idea

There are no logs in idea.log when compiling and there is only a few uninteresting rows in build.log:

... Does anybody know, what to do?

Please attach build.log file. You can learn its location here:

It's been 5 months since reported this issue and it is still there. This is quite alarming! Paid IDE and I can't compile my projects! Now it happens with imported maven project (java and scala).

My version is now 12.1.5
I can see some strange exception in idea.log:

Could anyone please help me?

Hi Libor,  According to exception, it seems like some storages for post-compile validation tasks (JasperValidator) are corrupted or data storage format for them has been changed. We've already done better handling for such cases. In the version you have please locate and delete the "

/compiler" directory on disk, this should help.

Hi Eugene,
thank you for resolution.
This could have been caused by no space on drive - you know this can happen quite often in times of small SSDs ;) It would be nice if IDEA can detect it and e.g. delete dome temp files.
