Google Drive public folders uneditable - Clear Read-Only Status fails

I've tried running as administrator, but I have the same issue.  If I change the Root folder back to private all is well.

If I use a different IDE - e.g. NetBeans - all is well.

NB - I can see all the files and open them, but can't save changes.

 

I'm not particularly technical so I'm not sure what else to try.  Any ideas greatly appreciated.

Hi there,

 

Please check this ticket -- sounds similar: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-117126

Is that a command line thing?

 

Yes -- attrib is a standard command for DOS environment.

 

I suggest you comment and post results of what has been asked in this comment (attrib, icacls and java class) in the actual ticket:

 

attrib -R /D /S dir

This command (modified with your folder name) should remove Read-Only attribute from all files and folders in all sub-folders in that target directory.

 

P.S.

I'm not sure about actual syntax though: based on quick help on Windows 7 ("attrib /?") it looks like it should be "attrib -R dir /S /D" (unless it accepts both variants)

Hello!

 

Google Drive puts read-only flag on the directories that are shared. PHPStorm is not compatible with it, it requires that folders do not have  read-only flag.
You are welcome to submit a request for Google Drive read-only folders support at http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/IDEA and it will be considered depending on the number of votes.
