#11928 new Bug report

macOS 10.13.6, Error: local: unable to open <filename>. File permission issue.

Operating system version: 10.13.6


Using FileZilla Client 3.42.1 during a file transfer session if the network is interrupted and FileZilla has to attempt to Resume a partially transferred file, one will first receive the first Error message "Error: local: unable to open <filename>" followed by a second Error message "Error: Critical file transfer error".

Mind you that I'm downloading data from a server to my personal MacBook Pro in my personal Downloads folder.

To resolve this issue, one needs to update the macOS permissions before attempting to Rest, Requeue and Resume the failed file(s).

This has only started happening recently with FileZilla's latest updates. I've been a FileZilla client user for many years and never has this happened until recently.

FileZilla is not honoring the folder's file permissions correctly.
