Disk Monitor Cannot Delete File In Directory


There is write access to a directory, but files cannot be deleted within.


The reported directory is generally accessible and writable, but files cannot be deleted by the Alienbrain server process. An access permission problem is likely.


  • Find out where the reported folder is hosted. Use the Administration Client for detailed project information.
  • Make sure access rights are set up properly for this location. This error indicates that file writing is generally OK, but deleting has been explicitly denied.

When the access permissions are corrected, you might see this error once again with an error code of (0x0). This should disappear after the next iteration of the disk monitor. If it doesn't, this indicates that the OS reports successful deletion of files where they really are still there.

Note: This message might still appear in the server health monitor for a few minutes after the cause of the error has been removed. See module description.
