Error: write to disk: cannot find path


Recommended Posts

  • 3 months later...

I too seem to having this issue; not sure what changed. I'm using a published NTFS share from a NAS for my save directory.

My issue specifically

After initiating a dl, the torrent begins, all caching seems to go as planned, the specific movie directory is created in my save directory and the torrent immediately fails with the "Error: WriteToDisk: The system cannot find the path specified." message. I do note that the subdirectory is created. And the application can find the location with the "Open Containing Folder" command...

Here's what I've already tried

  1. Completely removed and reinstalled utorrent
  2. Turing on and off write caching
  3. Triple checkec all ACL on the volume, folder and drive
  4. Tried saving torrents to the root of C:\ -- same exact error recieved
  5. Made sure to minimize total path and filename (to avoid 255 limit)
  6. Tried #5 with both absolute (\\NAPA\video\2BCheched\) and relative (V:\2BChecked\) paths
  7. Appended trailing "\" to end of path in save directory

I'm at a bit of a loss... i just started using utorrent about 5 days ago and have sucessfully downloaded 50+ torrents without incident. Yesterday this issue reared it's head... i was also pokin around with an older version of NERO (9), but do not see anything obvious that could be causing files to not be able to write. utottent is able to create the subdirectory, afterall...

Any help would be appreciated. TIA.

Hey i'm Paul,

I have too had that problem and the most simple way I found to fix it was to delete a dot (if there is one) at the end of the file when accepting to download it , or just change the name , usually it is the dot at the end that creates a problem. No clue as to why that happens.
