Woking of an FireWire disk
on Aug 31, 2011 at 11:47:55 am

I'm working of an FireWire disk for all of my projects. I have "projects" on one disk, and "events" on another. When i want to delete a project i get this message from FCPX

"This operation will not be undoable because trash isn't supported. Continue anyway?"

Anyone got a solution (besides changing disks)?

A project is a sequence. When you delete a sequence in FCP7 it is gone as well.

I'm confused. You want to delete it but not really delete it?

I want to delete it, but FCPX displays an error message that the "deletion will be permanent" as the "trash" don't work from that disk.

But; after a restart of FCPX the problem can't be reproduced so i'm writing it of as a bug in FCPX or something.

Are both of the disks formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled)? Are all the permissions on your disks set correctly, i.e. full read write, etc.? This can also happen when the disk is too full or the file too big to put it in trash, hence the immediate deletion.

Yes. Both disks are Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and are "full read / write". Both disks are 3TB of size and have (as i write this) still 2TB free space.

And nothing changed between the time it failed and the time it stopped fail, other than that i restarted FCPX. After i wrote the question i have still not experienced any problems (but i have only deleted a couple of projects in that timeline).

Replying to myself here. The warning are back. Everytime i now deletes a project (or event) i get this message.

Cannot be Undone

This operation will not be undoable because trash
isn't supported. Continue anyway?

And i have tried to move all files between different disks to see if it helps. The only time i don't get the warning are when the events and projects on the internal disk, where i have no space left. So i really need to have the files on external disks.

1. All my disks are formatet as "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
2. All my disks have the checkmark "ignore owenership on this volume" checked.
3. I have tried a "repair disk" in "disk utility".

Anyone have a tip on how to fix this?

Is FCPX quit when you do this?

Yes. It is. I still get the message now and then.

So how is FCPx giving you the message, and not the Finder?

I get the same message sometimes, maybe because it's a USB drive?
