Unable to over-write previously created pdf




I have a script that exports records to a PDF in a first step, and puts this pdf-file in a container in a next step.


When repeating the export a number of times (i have the impression that it occurs from the 3rd time onwards) (with the same filename) FM gives an errormessage indicating that it cannot over-write an existing file ("i should use another filename, expand my storagespace, change the disk, ...").


When i tried to delete the pdf-file, Finder (i'm using a Mac) didn't allow me to do that either saying that the file is still in use.


I guess that 'access-rights' have not been closed properly after having written the last time (or when pulled into the container?).


Does this sound familiar to somebody?


Thx for your feedback,



P.S. i'm running FM remote on my Mac, but the server runs on Windows (and the files i'm referring to above are on the server)
