Error 409

I get the following Error:

2018-10-14 17:21:11: "Error: POST files/delete_v2: Error (409): {"error_summary": "path_lookup/malformed_path/...", "error": {".tag": "path_lookup", "path_lookup": {".tag": "malformed_path"}}}

The folder app.asar in Local\Temp does not exist, instead the folder c:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Temp\nscD179.tmp\app\resources\app.asar.unpacked\ exist. 

Any proposal what to do?

I use 1.0.111 as portable version on Windows 10. Last Update today: 2018-10 Kumulatives Update für Windows 10 Version 1803 für x86-basierte Systeme (KB4462919)


What did you do to trigger that error ?

I edited a page back and forth a lot. Used VIM as external
editor. Created two pages with the same name and removed one again
and in parallel Windows installed the lasted update. Suddenly I
saw in the sync area that there was this error.

Hello developers,

I would like to help you to make your code even more stable. Today I cleaned up my Temp folder, activated the debugging mode and restarted Joplin. I did nothing, except waiting for the synchronisation.

It says:

  • Deleted remote items: 1
  • State: In Progress

for about 30 seconds.

As a result: This error was shown in the debugger console:

> [Violation] Added non-passive event listener to a scroll-blocking 'touchmove' event. Consider marking event handler as 'passive' to make the page more responsive.

By the way, the JoplinProfile\tmp\ folder is empty and does exist in Dropbox.


You should drop all the > at the front of each line. This > is for quoting. For code, use twice ``` at the first line of code and after the last line of code. I can’t fix that from my mobile for you;)
Actually, it’s unreadable to scroll in all directions.

Thanks for the feedback. I send the post via email and didn’t recognize to use markdown, sorry for that. The formatting of the previous post is fixed now.

However, what can I do to get rid of the sync error? At latest I recognized that my two Android and my Desktop versions are out of sync.

make sense :slight_smile: I forgot that :smiley:

otherwise I don't see what's going wrong, I don't understand why this error occurs.
@laurent will have a look at it i think

I renamed the profile folder in Windows Explorer and startet Joplin. After the synchronization all notes where back again and the Error 409 didn’t show up again.

I still have the defectiv folder for later tests.
