FileSystemException: /Volumes/video: Operation not permitted

Post by bmwrph » 27 Aug 2019, 19:15

Been using filebot for a while with no issues.

It's throwing a filesystemexception now for anything I try.

I usually rename and transfer files to my NAS.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/14Od0ng ... sp=sharing
FileSystemException: /Volumes/video: Operation not permitted

I tried local:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1xOPuP5 ... sp=sharing
FileSystemException: /VolOnly.Fools.And.Horses: Operation not permitted

These are the paths being used.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1dXQBz- ... sp=sharing

Nothing has changed AFAIK on my system. The above paths have successfully transferred hundreds of files till now :)

Am using iMac 2019 running MacOS Mojave

Whats going on?

Thanks

Chuck

Does the folder /Volumes/video exist on your system?

Code: Select all

FileSystemException: /Volumes/video: Operation not permitted
Because the root folder /VolOnly.Fools.And.Horses definitely doesn't exist, so either there's a display issue, or the format is borked, because this destination folder makes no sense:

Code: Select all

FileSystemException: /VolOnly.Fools.And.Horses: Operation not permitted


Unfortunately, there's probably nothing I can do, since the OS or the NAS simply refuses when FileBot politely asks to move A to B. I'd start by trying to rename files on your Desktop, narrow down where permissions allow, systematically try to find a solution from there. Try AFS instead of SMB and vice versa as network filesystem if you have trouble with one, just to see if it works with one but not the other.



:arrow: Press F5 twice to display sysinfo so I can see what version of FileBot you're using. Please read How to Request Help.


:idea: If you're using a Synology or QNAP device, then simply creating a new shared folder with pristine permissions is often the solution.

Just wanted to update.

folder /Volumes/video did exist . folder /VolOnly.Fools.And.Horses probably an anomaly...

Anyway, not sure what happened before , but on restarting my mac and remapping my synology NAS all is working as before now. NAS transfer as well as local transfer working as they should.

Hope it helps someone else :)
