Error on _variable.scss file when updating/editing. Doesnt update the static web server. Works rarely, randomly.

events.js:183 throw er; // Unhandled 'error' event ^ Error: scss\base_index.scss Error: File to import not found or unreadable: variables. on line 5 of scss/base/_index.scss from line 5 of scss/application.scss

@import 'variables';

I get the above error on my commandline when making changes to the _variables.scss files as the instructor does in the video. It will sometimes successfully record my editing but most of the time throw this error. I have followed the tutorial video code to a tee.
