Hi there everyone,

For quite a while, I have been returning packages to customers using SDL Studio with no problem at all.

For a couple of weeks, however, when I try to create the return package from a completed project, Studio stops half way, reports that the "directory is not empty" with no further error code or information, and does not create the return package.

Has any of you seen this? What is causing it?

Thank you so much in advance for any hints!
Tomás

Why not point create a new folder for the package? Feb 2, 2015

Not sure if this answers your question, but when I am told that the folder is not empty, and Studio, therefore, can't use it, I make sure to create a new folder and point Studio (the project or whatever) to that folder. I have had no problem with this so far at least.

More an internal problem Feb 2, 2015

Thank you Roy! Yes, I know what you mean. However, Studio does not need an empty folder to create the return package. When I get this message, if I try enough times, Studio eventually does make the package, but I have to repeat the package creation command a number of times until Studio complies. Just a strange behaviour!
