Are you able to create a directory at the same location with the same name that Photo Mechanic would have created for you, via the Finder?

Shure. What I forgot to write was that on 'Arbeitsfotos' photo mechanic can create the directory, on the other harddisk it fails. None of them is the disk the iMac boots from.

It is likely some sort of permissions problem.  Can you open up a Terminal window and execute the following?

find "/Volumes/Samsung SSD 1TB" -type d -ls

And paste the results in your reply?

Thanks,

sorry, I'm not skilled in this.

I'll give you more specific instructions:

In the Utilities folder of your Applications folder is an application called Terminal.  Open it up.
A window will appear that you can type text into.  Type the following and press enter:

find "/Volumes/Samsung SSD 1TB" -type d -ls

(you can copy and paste it if you want)

It will produce some output.  Copy it and paste it in your reply to this message.

Thanks,

-Kirk

OK, let's try this:

find /Volumes/*Samsung* -type d -ls

And post the output back here.  It will likely be a lot of text.

Yes, a lot of text. Here is just the beginning of it:

We'd need to see all of it and also know where it was that you had PM trying to create folders.

If you don't want to post it all here, you can contact me privately and I'll give you an email address where you can send the output.
