Error 70 on Canon 77D after 200 around shots

I'm using the LRTimelapse mode on qDSLRDashboard, shooting RAW+JPEG with an external intervalometer and after taking about 200 shots I got the dreadful Error 70 on my Canon 77D I had to pull out the battery and reinsert it to make the problem go away. But that interrupted my 5s interval shooting. How can I avoid this error?

The Err 70 is 'An image related malfunction has been detected.' according this: https://support.usa.canon.com/kb/index? ... &actp=LIST

Not sure why you get it, eventually try and increase your interval to 6s. Also select the smallest JPG format.

What do you mean by that? In RAW+JPEG mode there is no way to select what size of the jpeg I want - the only option is the large jpeg + original RAW.
I reformatted the SD card and will try 6s interval next time. We'll see if it helps.
