Access denied on overwrite RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I run SyncToy 2.1 on my Windows 7 PC.

    I am syncing files between my Windows Home Server (WHS V1) (Left Folder) and a Linux Server (Right Folder).

    All folders are shared to my PC.

    When I run SyncToy, I get Access Denied errors on Overwrite when trying to Overwrite the file on the Linux Server.

    However, I can drag and drop the file (answering Yes to the question about file already exists) with no problems.

    Overwrite works from Linux source to WHS destination.

    Setting is Synchronize.

    This is the error:

    Error: Cannot write to the destination file. Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT : 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED)) Copying <Source File> to <Destination File>
