Drive renamed by Resolve in it's disk directory
on Jul 16, 2012 at 12:31:45 pm

I made the mistake of opening resolve with our primary raid read-only. After I closed resolve, gave the raid write permission, and restarted resolve it could not browse or write to the raid (even though it was listed in the directory). So I removed the raid from the directory and added it again. Now the raid appears to have been renamed in the directory. The raid's name is Aurora 02, but in Resolve it lists it as Aurora 02 1.
This is causing entire projects to be offline because it's looking for Aurora 02.
Any idea's would be greatly appreciated.

Remove the directory in resolve, restart your machine open resolve and then add the directory again. It should remove the _1. If the doesn't work check to see what's happening with the raid using disk utility. Something is hanging on to the old alias.

If you're under the pump and things are stil working duplicate or backup your project (for protection only), and then remove all the media in the media pool and then add it again with the _1 volume. If you've been diligent with your media management things should relink fine.

Good luck!

Marcus.

I guess there is a directory in /Volumes/name_of_your_raid, that is not empty, and that prevents your volume being mounted to /Volumes/name_of_your_raid.
To check/solve is easy : remove the Raid of your computer, in Finder "Go.." Menu -> Go to Folder, enter /Volumes ; if there is a folder "name_of_your_raid", move it away (Trash, Desktop, wherever).

Now plugin your Raid, and cross fingers...

Thanks Micheal. Thanks for the reply. I found another post on the apple support site that basically said to do the same thing. The issue is called a "false mount point", caused by a crash that creates a folder of a volume. I deleted the folder from "/Volumes" and remounted the raid. Everything is working now. Never had this problem before and I have been on OSX since Jaguar, learn something everyday.
