i am getting some strange behavior from my drobo fs. basically, i want to copy torrent files from my home network computers to the drobo fs. there my headless mac mini picks them up for processing.
copy from downloads folder to drobo fs working flawlessly using on adding folder items applescript. i also have created the following applescript on the mac mini to pick up the files :
on adding folder items to WatchedFolder after receiving DetectedItems
tell application “Finder”
move DetectedItems to folder “Turgon:Users:Scott:Downloads”
delete DetectedItems – not sure why this is necessary
end adding folder items to
for one things the move command never works. i must always delete files after move. why is that ?
the weird thing is the behavior of the mini. it seems to forget that the script is there. if i reboot, the script is not active. even stranger, sometimes, i have two identical mounts of the drobo volume on the mini.
i mount the drobo fs volume at startup with a simple script that run "mount volume “afp://user:email@example.com/volume”. i have also tried with a smb mount, but get same results.
does this ring any bells ? help !
