Error - Cannot change permissions on existing files?

Post by johnyb » November 21st, 2017, 12:05 pm

Recently upgraded to newer version of the app on a new OMV based NAS. Strange thing is I get the following error about files that the app hasnt even downloaded itself. Curious as to why the apps trying to access other files in the download directory?
Thanks
ERROR 2 days ago Cannot change permissions of /srv/dev-disk-by-id-md-name-omv-new-OMVR52017/Movies/xxxxxxx.mkv

It will always try to correct the permissions (make them readable) for all stuff in the download directory recursively, just to be sure.
Mostly happens if you have for example categories with a path-setting that ends in a *.

It's indeed a bit pre-emptive, but we just wanted to make sure all is well and permission errors are caught early :)
