Topic: Problem with Siren 3.14 on Windows 7 64 bit and 3TB Seagate Barracuda


I have installed Siren 3.14 on a Windows 7 Ultimate Edition PC.

I have 2 hard drives in the PC:
- C: drive with 1TB capacity
- F: drive with 3TB capacity (Seagate Barracuda)

Siren 3.14 seems to work perfectly fine for renaming files on the C: drive, but it fails to rename any file on the F: drive, even if it's a copy of a file that can be successfully renamed on the C: drive.

The C: drive was formatted using the Windows 7 setup program, but to be able to utilise the full capacity of the F: drive, I had to set it up using the Seagate DiscWizard utility as a GPT data-only disk. I *think* this may be the reason I'm having trouble with using Siren on the F: drive.

Does Siren 3.14 support GPT disks, and if not, are there any plans to do so in the future?

Many thanks,

Welcome to this forum Maarten,

As Siren uses high level functions to rename, copy etc. files I don't think this problem is linked to GPT.
My first ideas bring me to think to two possible root causes :
1) Maybe is it a privilege problem. Have you tried to execute Siren as Administrator ?
2) Maybe is it due to the fact that the partition you are working on is bigger than 2 TiB. I have never tested Siren in this configuration.

To investigate further can you tell us the operations you tried to achieve and the resulting error messages ?

Thanks for your feedback.
