Occasional VCS errors (filesystem lock issues?)


Hello everyone,

I'm running PyCharm on Windows 10 and more than often I'm experiencing issues with filesystem-intensive VCS (Git) operations like merge, checkout, and similar. The error I get is the following:

I'm struggling to figure out what it can be related to. Things I'm thinking of:

- Angular compiler running on WSL

- Git running on Windows

- Our company's antivirus software (Trend Micro Security)

Any insight on this?


Thank you

Hello Giuseppe Daucelli

I believe that the first thing worth checking is antivirus software that may lock files thus leads to such behavior.
You may also use "Resource Monitor" in order to see which process can lock the file.
