When I try to save a file to an exFAT partition, OnlyOffice gives me the following error:
The way I have the exFAT partition mounted is as follows:
UUID=688F-6669 /home/my_user/Data exfat rw,user,nodev,async,auto,defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=022 0 0
I have tried other applications and they can write directly to that exFAT partition from Linux.
Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
Permissions don’t apply to an exfat partition; it’s incapable of supporting them, for Linux purposes. Try this instead in your
UUID=688F-6669 /home/my_user/Data exfat defaults,nofail 0 0
Some useful reference information:
Well if other programs have no problem then it must be something about OnlyOffice. Since it is proprietary you would need to ask the OnlyOffice Support. https://forum.onlyoffice.com/
My guess is that it tries to write a file with specific permissions, which doesn’t work on exfat, since it is just an overlay and set on mount time.
