I struggled for a few days to synchronise my notebook with the server.
From server to notebook was ok, but notebook to server direction was blocked.
I have been using VV Pro for a year, and have had only joy to date. I changed notebooks last week (wich included a change to Vista).

Thanks to the tip "flag the 'copy directly to the destination file' " in one of the discussions, I resolved this block. VV is back online!

On reflection, I should have deduced this problem. When I manually dragged and dropped a file to the destination in VV, it seemed to be OK with the copy of the file to 95% completion, but then changed its mind, and came with the error message. i.e. it could not change the temporary file name to the actual file name!

Voila, disable the temporary file option, and it works.

What is the risk with a direct copy?

Hi, when not using a temp file, the overwritten file is replaced during a copy and if the copy fails, the file is incorrect. When using a temp file, the overwritten file is replaced by the temp file only at the end, if the copy is successful. It is strange that the server does not allow renaming.... maybe some of the file permissions are blocking this? thanks

This can only b file permissions on the server. The synchronisation was working perfectly. There were no changes to the server. User name was unchanged.

The only change was
- new notebook
- Vista operating system on the notebook (possibly the ultimate cause?)

Hence my puzzlement!

I too had this problem. I would get errors on all hidden, system, and read only files. The log file said "coulnd not change attributes ... Access Denied" Selecting Direct copy works great. I have a NAS (LaCie 1TB Ethernet Big Disk) but there not not much to it. Don't know what else I can change on it.

I am also getting this exact problem (Can not change attributes of...) on a LaCie 2TB Ethernet Big Disk (hah!)

Is there a solution to this now?

There must be an incompatibility between the hidden, system, and read only file attributes, temp files and the LaCie NAS... I think switching on the option 'Copy Directly to destination file (do not use a temporary file)' solves the problem(VV won't use temp files then). thanks
