There (hopefully) should be some log entry to show why it fails to create the _modified file.

Do you have meta-data write-back enabled? Then this is probably a known bug: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=736961 Please provide a debug log of all those things if you can reproduce them easily. To get the debug log, run shotwell from the console with SHOTWELL_LOG=1 shotwell and then send me the ~/.cache/shotwell/shotwell.log _______________________________________________ shotwell-list mailing list email@example.com https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/shotwell-list
