For several days I’ve been seeing a ‘folder has failing file transfers’ message in syncthing/synctrayzor. Here are the relevant log entries:
2020-09-04 08:36:49 Completed initial scan of sendreceive folder apps_a2010 2020-09-04 08:36:49 Puller (folder apps_a2010, item “trustex\docs\20200610 cbc g sample data”): delete dir: remove \?\C:\mso\apps_a2010\trustex\docs\20200610 cbc g sample data: Access is denied. 2020-09-04 08:36:49 apps_a2010: Failed to sync 1 items
There is nothing special about this folder, other than I have been editing some files in it recently (xls mostly). I’ve tried some improvised fixes but nothing has helped - for example, I turned off the machine that reports the sync error, and removed that entire folder from the pc it syncs to, and restarted the error reporting pc. It resync’d fine, as far as I can tell, but the error remains. My admin login is the owner of the folder on both pcs (windows 2012 r2 domain).
What can I do about this Access is denied error? I wonder why it reports the folder as giving the error, when clearly it does have access to the folder? It was able to resync the folder’s contents…
I even moved the reported problem folder from both pcs (moved out of sync area) and the same folder is still reported by syncthing with the ‘access is denied’ error. How can that make sense? The folder isn’t present on either side at this point.
