With SyncBack Touch V1.3.8 for macOS and SyncBackPro V7.6.36.0 on Windows 10, files were copied to macOS and were assigned Read only permission except for Services account. We had to revert to SyncBack Touch v1.2 which didn't have this permission issue. How to fix the permission issue?

Hi,

Starting with version 1.3.8 on macOS, SyncBack Touch is running as a background service so everything created is owned by root. We are looking into this now and hopefully we'll be able to fix it quickly.

Thanks,
Kostas

HI,

We've released a beta (version 1.3.9) for SyncBack Touch for macOS which will set the file's group to have the +rw permission as well.

You can download the installer package from http://www.2brightsparks.com/assets/sof ... kTouch.dmg

Thanks,
Kostas
