iTunes Sync to Filemaker Go permission problem


FileMaker Pro


Filemaker 12 v5

Operating system version

OS X 10.9 (13A603)

Description of the issue

Cannot transfer a database with three tables in a single file to iPad Air running latest iOS. This database had been transferred successfully many times. Message is "Recipes3.fmp12" could not be copied because you do not have permission to see its contents.

I have never set any security on this database as it is used to keep track of bread recipes from a wide variety of sources. I have not made any changes to the file, but I have updated to Mac OS 10.9 and updated both Filemaker Pro 12 and iTunes since the last successful sync.

The iPad Air is very new, of course.
