#1 Updated by Evelyn McLellan almost 12 years ago

This is caused by giving the shared folder name in Archivematica settings the same
name as on the host station. Giving them different names resolves the issue. I will
update the user documentation.

  • Priority changed from High to Critical

Changing the folder is not working. Right now I can't drag and drop out of receiveSIP
and I can't drop or copy anything into storeAIP because I don't have
read/write/delete permissions. I can't change the permissions because I'm not the
owner of the folders.
