Vectorworks and NAS device


I have a Synology NAS DS416.  I am in the process of moving files to the device into a public folder, which has files below it.  All seems okay with opening Vectorworks files that I have moved there.  But when trying to save, I am getting 2 different error messages, see attached.


The first screenshot happens after I opened up the drawing and tried to save.

The second screenshot happens when I try to do a save as. 


I have created other folders that are in the same public folder, on the same device and I can do a save as to these same folders.  I can also move a file to other folders, open and do a save and all works.


So the hierarchy is as follows:


Data_File (Shared Public Folder)

--> IT Folder (Can do a save and save as)

-->PM Date File (Can not do anything to this folder)





Thank you for the help.

I have not tested it personally, however I have heard of users running into trouble with older versions of Vectorworks, Project Sharing and Synology devices. A number of bugfixes related to this were added in 2018 SP2 it looks like.

I have the same Gear and have not had the Issue. But I do not save to the Synology Directly often.


I use the Cloud Station app to Mirror my Local Drive folder and then Set the Share properties of the Mirrored copy  on the synology if I need to send someone a link to the file.


Not an answer really to your issue but maybe a work around until you get it straight.

The issue was that I called the shared folder Public.  That name is reserved for system use.  What is interesting is that it only seemed to affect the Vectorworks drawings.  That being said all seems to be just fine at this point.


Thank you for the help.
