Realized I had some Windows updates pending. Installed all of those and that seemed to fix this issue.

Double-check your Windows updates if you're getting this error.

Ok, nevermind. This issue is back. I have no idea what's going on nor how to fix this. I haven't changed ANYTHING in my setup for over a year and all of a sudden this error or "Errno" is happening every time. WTF?

Have you tried using a completely different folder?
Error 13 is about permissions, but could also indicate the file is in use. For example by a virusscanner.
Have you tried excluding the download folder from your virusscanner? Even Windows Defender you can define exclusions folders.

Hello,

I'm experiencing the same behaviour after upgrading to the latest version.
Just pauses every few minutes downloading with error message about not being able to create file.

resuming allows it to continue downloading again for a few minutes, after it fails again on the next rar part and pasuses, resuming again works etc. eventually file gets downloaded but not really workable. Will try downgrading to see if that 'fixes' it.


Checked and have enough (500GB) free diskspace, first tried whitelisting processes and filters in windows defender, then even completely turned off windows defender (both virus and threat protection + app and browser control).
Also checked permissions on download folders, changing ntfs full control for everyone , but despite that issue persists.

Exract from logs:


Regards,
Fredddiedv

It's not a Sab thing, it's something on your computer. You can even try to use an older version of Sab, I'm pretty sure the exact same thing will happen.
