@Greg1634z3 wow, printer software locks 1Password files? Did you try to print something while using 1Password? I'm failing to see how that could happen.
@cterry877 there are few tricks that work, but there is no single one that works for everyone:
So, it's still trying to lock 1Password folder? I strongly recommend you touch Brother's support to explain what they're doing in there. There is zero reason any other process should be looking at our folders or any other folders they're not a part of.
Check your Brother's software settings, there might be something they're scanning all folders for.
I asked this question on ServerFault.com, since solving these issues in a forum is usually fruitless because it's just a transcript of people trying to figure something out, instead of a ranking of solutions:
1Password in stuck in continuous update loop with Windows 10 denying permissionhttps://serverfault.com/questions/1014712/1password-in-stuck-in-continuous-update-loop-with-windows-10-denying-permission
Could someone from 1Password answer there with a definitive list of things to try?
Your app could also could improve the error message that occurs.
I can't speak for Sever Fault, but when there is a single solution to a problem, we try to mark it as such here and update the original post with a link when something has been more widespread. In this case, though, there really isn't an authoritative solution. There are some more common issues which we've outlined here, but there are definitely outliers.
As for the error message, 1Password is sharing all it knows in these cases. It's Windows that is telling us the folder can't be written to or isn't able to modified or whatever the case might be and we're relaying exactly what Windows tells 1Password, with a bit of context based on what we know about the typical issue of this type. Depending on what version you're stuck on, you may not see this, but as we learned more about the problems folks were having and the common solutions, we also added a "learn more" button that links to the guide I included here with that error message, so that's something else we've tried to do to help.
Our hope is that this gets most folks sorted – permanently in many cases – but for those running into something different, the best and only option is one-on-one help. In that case, I tend to agree forums aren't the best choice and would suggest dropping us an email to [email protected] instead so we can work with you directly.
I had this issue for a while, but I managed to solve it doing the below (I use Malwarebytes and Windows Defender as my protection of choice):
1. Update Malwarebytes to the latest version (126.96.36.199 as I type this). I was on 4.1.0.xx (I think 188.8.131.52, but I didn't jot this down).
2. Open Malwarebytes's "Allow List" and add the following rules:
If you're still experiencing issues, I recommend checking that Windows Firewall and Malwarebytes haven't blocked and quarantined anything in the 1Password directories respectively, then try again. Hope this helps!
Thank you for these steps! They are indeed really helpful.
I'd like to add that I would always recommend using the latest versions of the software on your devices, especially if it is security software, be it 1Password or Malwarebytes. It is a good security habit.
Let us know if you have other questions about 1Password now, we are always ready to help.
FYI, I encountered the same error. By reading this and other support disucssions, I resolved this situation by:
Interesting find, @EC_7. Looks like perhaps a prior update had failed back before the installer properly tidied and Windows wasn't allowing us to rename a folder to have a name that matched an existing folder. I'm not sure if we can handle that better – depends how detailed the feedback the installer gets is – but I'll be sure to share with our development team in case we can handle that scenario on our own.
I can confirm @EC_7's solution solved this for me.
Glad to hear it, @andrewrobbinsd!
