Default Auto backup faillure

Hi folks

This experience is new to me,well i have noted that eventually pro tools 12 does not auto backup sessions,cause when the glorious error6 came crashing things down i try to move back to earlier safe and there is no copy safe.PT is setedup to backup every 15 min.Now,this moening appear a message saying PT was unable to auto backup.If your seession is on a read only drive you must disable ato backup etc.
Is there someone familiar with that?

I've had the experience lately on OSX where permissions on an external drive mysteriously changed from read-write to read only. Get info about your drive and check that the permissions are correct. And better yet, select the checkbox for "ignore permissions" on that drive. Then restart protools and try again.

There's probably a way to check and adjust permissions from the protools workspace browser. Someone else here prolly knows that better than I do. Good luck.

I've gotten that error on Windows for years. At least since PT9, but maybe going back to PT7. This is over at least three totally different computer builds. The problem is, it's not repeatable. It just pops up now and then. The same session will work fine for many hours over many days, then suddenly it can't auto-backup and the program crashes. I take the most recent auto-backup (or the current session if it happens to be more recent) and continue working, no problem. Clearly a bug somewhere, but is it PT, Win7, in the drive support software? Who knows?
