"you Don't Have Enough Permissions To Share Part Of A Read-Only Folder. Please Choose Another Folder."

Recommended Posts

I'm new to playing with BT sync and I recently setup a ~188GB folder to sync on my laptop. I then went to another machine on my LAN, added a new folder and copied the Read Only key to it. When I clicked OK, I got the error "You don't have enough permissions to share part of a read-only folder. Please choose another folder." This is odd because I have another subdirectory in the same parent directory that has a folder that syncs just fine.

 

What can cause this?

I am having exactly same problem. It occurs when I am trying to backup my iphone5. Here are the steps:

 

On iphone:

p1. tap Backup

p2. Tap enable

p3. email secret

 

on computer:

c1. Add folder to sync

c2. enter secret from step p3 above

c3. choose destination folder to sync and bam ! there you see the error

I've had a similar thing. I had a folder /x/y that was shared. Then I created /x/y/z as a shared folder. Didn't work.

I removed /x/y as a shared folder and then added /x/y/z. Works fine.

 

I think you cannot make a subfolder of a shared folder shared again.

this does not make sense to be because in https://github.com/vole/vole which requires btsync it says:
 

  • Grab the read-only ID of the person you want to follow. A directory is in progress at vole.cc. Why not start with Vole Team updates? Our key is RA32XLBBHXMWMECGJAJSJMMPQ3Z2ZGR7K.
  • Find the Vole users folder. Unless you changed the defaults, it will be in a directory called Vole/users in your home folder.
  • Create a new folder in Vole/users, you should name it after the user that you're about to follow. For example, Vole/users/voleteam.
  • In BitTorrent Sync, add this new folder as a shared folder, using the read-only key you grabbed in step 1. Instructions are available on their site and vary a little by operating system.

    of course 'their site' refers to http://www.bittorrent.com/sync which says nothing about this.

You don't add /Vole or /Vole/Users in BTSync

only /Vole/Users/user1

 /Vole/Users/user2

 /Vole/Users/user2

and so on.
