    DeletingAtticFiles

    Anyone know what this file does in the Attic folder? Read a recent post that mentioned the file and deleting it, but am wondering why it is there and what it does.

    Re: DeletingAtticFiles

    There is a file that randomly shows up in the attic folder called DeletingAtticFiles.  On a mac it shows up as an executable file.  When present, it seems to cause problems with unity clients.  If you open it with Text Wrangler it sometimes has the name of the problematic client.  After deleting it, all is okay, but I am wondering what it is...

    Re: DeletingAtticFiles

    anyway, different question if I may intervene. Does anybody know a tool to automatically delete attic files, at a scheduled time?

    You should post your question under a new topic instead of hijacking this thread.

    Re: DeletingAtticFiles

    Now that's a fun way to revive a 12 year old Thread!

     

    Best guess is a permissions issue with the Attic folder itself.   Your options are to check those permissions-  or select a new location for the Attic.

    Re: DeletingAtticFiles

    I renamed the attic project folder with an "x" in front of it, which forced Avid to create a new one.  Problem solved.
