For some reason the only way I can save the attached file is to first delete it (while it's open in FreeCAD), then save it after deleting. Otherwise saved changes do not get applied.
When I try to save I get this warning in the report view:
Code: Select all
Cannot rename project file to backup file Cannot rename file from 'C:/Users/mwganson/Downloads/GoProMount.FCStd.723b300a-b1c9-4df4-bba1-aecaf00d0cdb' to 'C:/Users/mwganson/Downloads/GoProMount.FCStd'
With other files I don't have this issue, or at least haven't noticed it with other files.
I have tried deleting my config files -- no change.
I ran a full virus scan -- no problems found.
I ran a full chkdsk /f disk check -- no problems found.
This issue pre-existed the Link merge and thus is unrelated.
I ran as administrator -- no change.
A fix for this could be perhaps to try deleting the file when this exception is caught, then retry renaming. The exception needs to prevent FreeCAD from closing. The user should be informed that a backup exists. Perhaps the backup could contain the FCStd extension at the end of the guid, then users could still open that file without needing to rename it.
I'm not sure why the renaming fails, perhaps because the other file exists and it won't rename the new file over it. Perhaps a delete operation fails and the FCStd file is not any longer supposed to exist at the point of renaming the backup.
