Updated To A New Version. I Tried To Reset Ownership Via Webgui But Not Working.

Recommended Posts

I get the message:

 

Destination folder cannot be identified. Would you like to reset ownership?

 

I select ok but then get an error:

 

Don't have permissions to write to the selected folder.

Also none of my settings saved :-/

@SpencerH,

 

There is not too much details, but i'm a little familiar with scenario you describe.

1. You try to add a folder when you get this message.

2. The folder you try to add was actually added before and was not properly cleaned up (old file .syncid is still present in the folder).

3. The old .syncid file does not match to the new generated secret - therefore, BTSync shows you the message and when you choose to "Reset ownership" - it is going to overwrite .syncid with a new ID derived from the new secret - and fails due to permissions issue.

4. As settings are also not saved, I suspect he same issue - permissions denied.

 

My suggestion would be - the user running BTSync has no RWX permissions to both sync folder, and storage folder.
