This message is when Lifeboat thinks your Super Simple Sync database is open elsewhere. You can erroneously get this message if Lifeboat is not quit by normal means (such as a crash). You will find the .lockfile Alberto mentions in your Super Simple Sync folder, not your Application Support folder. Delete the invisible lockfile.
This system was invented to avoid collisions with two people trying to use Super Simple Sync on different machines at the same time. It’s called super simple for a reason
I’ve been searching for both “Super Simple Sync” and “Lifeboat.lockfile” in my whole library folder (with an app I made, which can search with criterions, like in Mac OS classic; I know the app works), but haven’t found any.
We’re speaking about the Library folder inside the home folder, right?
Yes, I understood
No problem. With my application to search for files, I searched thru the whole Library folder (inside my home folder) for the lock file but there was no result. So no location looks to be correct (? ). Thank you.
Hmm… I’m not syncing anything, not using DropBox, iCloud or whatever. Probably the reason why “Super Simple Sync” doesn’t ring a bell to me.
Sadly, I can’t even launch Lifeboat to check my settings, but I’m not recalling I did chose an option to sync.
Edit: I’ve just noticed the .Lifeboat.lockfile in my iCloud documents folder. Can’t figure out why it went there, as I’m not syncing things with iCloud on my computer (and the file wouldn’t appear in a local folder).
If you have an explanation, I’d like to read it.
I’ve deleted that file and it worked! Thanks for your support!
Now that I regained control of Lifeboat, I’ve verified, and the checkbox is checked, indeed. Could it have been an option automatically turned on? Otherwise it looks like I checked it too fast .
