Xcode Snapshots

  • I am having trouble creating snapshots of my project using Xcode 3.0.

    When I try, I get the error message:

      Failed to open storage for snapshots.
      A new snapshot storage will be created automatically and the old
    one moved to the trash.

    I press OK and then I get the message:

      The attempt to replace the faulty snapshot storage failed.
      Xcode will not be able to create new snapshots. Please try to
      manually remove the fautly snapshot storage:
      ~/Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/
    SnapshotRepository.sparseimage

    I then do:

      rm ~/Library/Application\ Support/Developer/Shared/
    SnapshotRepository.sparseimage

    and press OK on the error dialog.

    I then get the message:

      Snapshot Failed
      A project snapshot cannot be created.

    If I try again, I get the same set of error messages.

    The only other message I see is in the console:

      Xcode[3648] Failed to create snapshot - repository disk image not
    mounted.

    Any suggestions for getting this working?

    Check the file system permissions on "~/Library/Application Support/
    Developer/Shared".
    Is that folder owned, and writable, by you? If not, you need to fix
    that.

    The permissions are:

    drwxr-xr-x  3 ericgorr  staff  102 Apr  9 22:41 Shared

    So, they seem to be correct. And,

    -rw-r--r--  1 ericgorr  staff  115347456 Apr  9 22:41
    SnapshotRepository.sparseimage

    is being created when I try to create a snapshot, so, it does appear
    that Xcode is able to write something to that directory...but, I
    continue to get those errors.
  • If anyone is interested, I cleaned up the folder again and then
    restarted my machine. After that, it started working...looks like
    something got temporarily corrupted.
