I'm running solidworks engineering simulations on my PC. For 6 months, I'd been saving the results to a local folder on my hard drive that was also synced to my NAS. I have versioning active on my NAS, so it tracks changes made to the files on my NAS but doesn't plug up my PC hard drive. This worked well and I didn't have any problems. However, for the last 3 months or so (tough to remember when it started what with the covid-19 break in the middle), solidworks will not write the simulation results file to this synced folder. It'll save the assemblies and part files to the synced folder, but will not write the simulation results. I keep getting an error saying that the disk is full even though I have plenty of room on both my local drive and my NAS. If I point solidworks to write the results file to a non-synced folder, it works just fine. What do I have to do to get my NAS to allow Solidworks to write to the synced folder? I'm assuming there is a firewall setting somewhere that got bumped at some point.
