At moment I have 3 databases with lot of Folders and lot of documents.
First I create a database with one folder and one subfolder included 6 files.
3 PDF and text
Later on I open 2 databases from V1 and convert both to V2.
This convert databases work well or I see no mistake at moment.
But in the first DB I …
a) Cannot move a file to one of other DB.
b) Cannot delete a file.
c) Cannot drag and drop a file from desktop in DB. When I drag the file in DB window the limit line change to blue, that’s normal work.
d) I see no lock of DB or file.
e) When I click on file the delete button in top of window is not workable.
f) When I click on file in DB and use copy and insert the file on desktop it works well.
I have no idea whats wrong.
Can someone help me, maybe it’s a little problem.
Now I see following
In the “wrong” database I cannot use tool:
Only backup restore is available.
But when I use this it comes an error info when I use the backup from 19.11.2009.
I found a pragmatic solution.
I can copy and paste the files in a new folder on desktop and delete the wrong database.
Copy and paste works well ?
But what is the cause of this wrong behavior ?
Maybe it comes in the future ?
Sounds like the database is read-only (e.g. due to permission/ownership issues or depending where it’s stored) and therefore all commands modifying the database are disabled.
Your answer was very helpful and the solution.
I have look again in files, database ind DTPO_2 and found following.
The database “Testdatenbank_2_beta” was locked in finder, see info in finder.
My idea was when I do this I cannot delete the database.
In DTPO_2 the info of database show no protection.
I have activate in DTPO_2 the database, see screenshot but this is not a right activation of database.
I have delete the protection in finder and then I can work in database.
