Syncing file permissions

I’m running Insync in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and also on a virtual machine on that computer running the same Ubuntu release.

Permissions were changed once to executable with:

chmod +x

but are not getting synced properly on the other machine(s).

How can I get Insync to sync and preserve file permissions for the same file across multiple Linux machines?

This thread is related but not the same circumstances. Insync is running as the logged in user on both machines.

Any updates on this bug please?

Hi @Marc_Compere @ssd2019, can you provide your Insync versions here so I can forward this to our engineers for assistance? :slight_smile:

Hello, sorry, I didn’t see this until now.

I’m running Insync version 1.5.7 now. It’s not clear what version it was then.

I have the same issue.

Version, v3.3.1.40899, I’m on Manjaro Linux.

Any update on this? This issue persists on v3.3.4.40916

@Schokobecher Hi!

We’ll need to dig deeper into this to check. Please send your logs.db and out.txt files to with the link to this post. Those two files can be found in ~/.config/Insync. :slight_smile:

Please also update to 3.3.6-- these are already on the repos. Thank you!

Any news here? I try to work on Git repos with executable files and I always lose the execute permissions after syncing.
