Problem with snapshot folder permissions

I'm testing Acrosync for backing up several machines to a NAS, and I was using the snapshot feature.  On the NAS the user shared folders are setup with different uid, but a common gid.  When Acrosync creates the snapshot folders it assigns permissions of:


Since gid is lacking "x" permission the directory cannot be indexed by anyone other than the owner, so it shows up blank to anyone else.  I need a way to get the gid permissions to be "r-x" instead of "r--", such that it is one of the following:

drwxr-x---   (uid read-write, gid read-only)
drwxr-xr-x  (incl other)

Is there a way to do this?


  • If "r" is set, there is no reason why "x" can't be set for a directory.

    I'll fix this in the next update, which should be available by the end of next week.

  • Hi Gang,
    Have you been able to make this change yet?  
    The latest version I have is still 1.6 build 582 and would like to know if there is any newer build.
  • This issue has been fixed in this 1.7 build:

    You'll get a new 15-day trial if you're trialing Acrosync.  Otherwise, you'll need to enter the license code again as version 1.7 now has a new licensing scheme.
  • thank you.
