Unable to create or locate Ingest data file
« on: July 29, 2020, 04:57:46 AM »
Hi,

MacOS Catalina
macOS 10.15.6 (19G73)
Running Photo Mechanic Version 6.0, build 4155 (e068498)

I am getting the following error when I try to do an ingest:

"Incremental Ingest: Unable to create or locate Ingest data file on /Volumes/D3_8GB.  Is this a read-only volume?  Incremental Ingest will not function for this volume."

Using a Lexar LRW300U CF card reader with a SANDisk extreme 8GB CF card (which has never had any issues in the past)


I have verified that the disk is NOT read-only by copying and pasting a file to it. I also created a file on the volume from terminal.

I also tried on an identical CF card and got the same result.

Not 100% sure but this may be my first doing an ingest since upgrading to Catalina - so could be Catalina related?

Or do you know what else might cause this?

Thanks

Definitely Catalina related.  Catalina by default does not allow "Full Disk Access" to all applications.  Please see this article: https://embrilliance.com/archives/2835

While it discusses a different app called "Embrilliance", the solution pertains to Photo Mechanic as well.  You'll have to add Photo Mechanic 6 to the list of applications that have "Full Disk Access".

HTH,

-Kirk
