"Cannot save file" message

Answered

I am using PyCharm 2.0 (beta) 110.451 and have my project files in a Dropbox folder (windows 7). Since I installed the 2.0 beta version every 3-4 file saves I get an error message informing me that PyCharm cannot save the file (can't access the file), and the file is renamed to something like this: views.py___jb_bak___

I didn't have this problem with previous versions of PyCharm.

I tried manual save instead of autosave but I still get this message.

any ideas what is going on?

Hello Chris,

As far as I understand this should be fixed in the RC build. Please try upgrading.

I just started getting this error In IntelliJ 2017.2.5. It is a new Java Source file with about 25 lines. This is the second time I have had this problem, but when it happens, it continues to happen. The <my java source file>.java__jb_old__ (Access is denied) continues to throw up the error dialog box making it very difficult to work. Also, <my java source file>.java__jb_tmp__ is left in the src file.  Both files can be deleted, but the old file keeps returning.  This is very exasperating.  It will not let me save my source file.

I'm having the exact same issue, but in intelliJ. I cannot run my program, because it's looking for the jb_old file rather than my current one.

Error:resources: <file path>.java___jb_old___ (Access is denied)

Now I'm getting 4:51 PM Unable to save settings: Failed to save settings. Please restart IntelliJ IDEA.

Everytime I start it. 

I going to have to reinstall 2017.2.4, so I can get something done.

Yes this is the error I've been getting for the last few days now as well. Your talking about the little popup on the bottom right?

Was a bug open for this?

Same thing here running Pcharm, closing IDE is not solving it but I actually have to restart the computer to get things working again.... :(

After a fresh reinstall of intelliJ and to no avail the issue persisted. I finally found a fix for my issue, I just needed to close "Backup and Sync from Google" and restart intelliJ. This simply seemed to do the job of the cannot save files error that kept popping up. 

Is anyone else who is getting this error running their auto saved files from a cloud drive?

Wow! Exactly, that did the trick.

Thank you so much.

 

Maybe out of scope here but what's the difference between PyCharm community and paid one?

 

Thanks.

Glad I could help, now if more can confirm this fix, we might let @PavelKarateev and @DmitryJemerov from JetBrains know about this to help them out further.

Comparison matrix can be found here: https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/features/editions_comparison_matrix.html In general Professional edition includes all web-related stuff (frameworks, JS and so on).

The Google Drive Backup and Sync seems to have fixed my problem, too. Thanks.

As you can see, I own the ultimate version, and I still had the Google Drive sync issue.

Restarting Google Backup and Sync fixed it for me as well.  Below is the start of the error I was getting.
