Default Could not create a new document because Permission denied (13) while creating

Hello,

I've had no problem creating new Sessions in PT 12.6. until now.

I was watching a YouTube tutorial on using Kontakt MultiOuts within Pro Tools, and went to make a new session to work through the tute.
Each attempt at creating a new session displayed the error message:

"Could not create a new document because Permission denied (13) while creating"

I looked through the web and found others in the past had this problem, but am not sure why it's happening or what to do about it.

One person said NEVER Update anything with a session open.
I realised that before I saw this guy's post, I DID update the KONTAKT Factory Content in order to work through the tutorial.

I'm not sure if I still had PT open or closed during that Content Update.
I can't think of anything else that may have caused this error.
Would such a simple update completely disable PT 12.6 from creating a new session.

BTW, I can still open sessions created prior to this error which happened 45 minutes ago.

Any helpful suggestions gratefully appreciated, as I'm bang in the middle of some heavy keyboard editing sessions for a new album and need to get back to work.

Cheers...

Thanks for the article link.

I did in fact see that article before posting my request, but as I'm trying to create a regular Session, not a Project for Cloud services / collaboration, I assumed it was not applicable for a Session.

I will try that suggestion, but don't see how / why it should have just ocurred out of the blue, given that I've had no prior issue creating a Session.

Any suggestion as to the Session versus Project issue here?

OK, I followed the steps from the article in Avid Knowledge Base as quoted above.

I set all permissions in the 'Documents/Pro Tools' folder to 'Read & Write" and also confirmed these in 'Documents/Pro Tools/Projects' folder.

I am still getting the same Error message, and can't create a New Session.

Just to be clear, I am trying to create a SESSION, not a PROJECT or anything involving CLOUD SERVICES and/or Collaboration.

Does anybody have a fix for this, as it suddenly happened at random, after never had this issue before.

I'd suggest to repair disk permissions, but I have no idea how it's done in El C. and Sierra.

THIS IS THE FIX for this issue. After 3 days searching the web etc, it was something that took approximately 60 seconds to resolve.

I Did This:

After confirming that my Data HD was set to 'Read+Write' permissions:
Click CMD + i on my Data HD, and then enabled "ignore ownership on this volume".

So easy to achieve, so long in the finding.
