Sync Doesn't Have Permission To Write On Sdcard (Lollipop)

Recommended Posts

@all interested,

 

There is a beta build with ability to write to SD card available for testing. Please apply here.  

All feedback is welcome, please send is from the app with logs attached if you find a problem. Thank you.

Unfortunately with the recent beta version, after adding a folder and setting it to the SD card, all I get is that infamous "cannot identify the destination folder" error.

This is on Marshmallow 6.0.

Ynnadanny,

 

Could you please send the feedback from the app with logs attached? 

Without logs we assume that there is something wrong with .sync directory inside shared folders.  Can you please double check it and make sure that it's present and not changed - there were cases when a backup tool altered files in .sync. Thanks.

I could workaround this issue by moving Btsync to the SD card via the Apps menu. At least the files can be synced to the SD card that way, albeit only to the respective subdirectory of the (moved) Btsync app.

rookey,

 

What is your device that lets move Sync to SD? 

Are you using the beta build and still not allowed to write to the card apart from the sandbox? If yes, open "Contact Support" in the app, and in 'E-mail' field type SNC.DBG.SD.ENABLE, hit Send. Restart Sync, see if it helps.

I experienced the same thing on Android. I wanted to Sync to \Sync\Music but had to use the default folder (/android/data/com.bittorrent.sync), a right pain!

 

Installing BT Sync to SD card was no problem.

This beta didn't solve the issue for me.

Just get " Cannot identify the destination folder" message near folder icon in the Android app.

 

What I did:

1. Became a beta tester.

2. Got beta build v2.2.6.

3. Added new folder, have point it to the folder placed on SD card.

4. Got "Cannot..." message.

5. Used "SNC.DBG.SD.ENABLE" trick, reloaded the app, recreated the new sync item.

6. No difference.

7. Went to be sad.

 

My device is Sony Z3 compact (D5803), Android v5.1.1, not rooted. Sync app is in the phone storage, not possible to move to to SD card.
