.htaccess Backup Failed
When i make changes on .htaccess files and save, notepad++ throws popup error
File Backup Failed
The previous version of the file could not be saved into the backup directory at “C:\Users\abc\Doocuments\not.htaccess.bak”.
Other files is being saved fine, i also run as administrator the notepad++.
notepad++ v7.3.3 x64
it wasnt doing this, started almost a month ago (before v.7.3.3 update)
i know windows dont like files without a name like ‘.htaccess’, but this wasnt happenning several months ago.
What can i do to fix this ?
What if you save the file manually and make a change afterwards?
Does it work again? (if you didn’t change backup frequency it should create a backup after 7 seconds)
In addition, the file is called .htaccess?
But the message looks like it is called not.htaccess!?
Sorry about the mixup error mesagge, cant c/p popup text.
This error happens when i try to save manually, when i press ctrl+s, file is being saved, and the error pops up.
if other files get saved in backup directory then you do not have a permission issue
and filesystem seems to have no space issue.
I would use procmon,
set a filter for htaccess and see what is really going on.
Got this error as well, even when sharing the folder with EveryOne and allowing changes. The Backup folder is marked read-only, and there is also a problem removing that property.
But no issue at all when running N++ as Admin - must be because my username (owner of folder) has admin credentials.
