Upload from Android to laptop failed - We don't have permission to read (a gpx file)

Upload from Android to laptop failed - We don't have permission to read (a gpx file)

New member | Level 2

For many years I have used Memory-Map on various Android phones, and recorded the tracks of my walks and cycles. These are small .gpx files, and I've always been able to upload these via a Share / Add to Dropbox option in Memory-Map. T his opens the map overlay folder in my Dropbox. Clicking the add button leads to .... "Upload failed. We don't have permission to read (name of gpx file)". Camera Uploads still work as usual.

Hi @Skiwalker, thanks for messaging today!

 

Have you recently made any updates to the Dropbox mobile app, or this other third party app? If not, please try updating them to see if this helps.

 

Keep me posted!

Hi Jay. Both Dropbox and Memory Map are current versions. I don't remember either being updated recently and I was able to upload to Dropbox a few of my completed cycle tracks 4 weeks ago. I have checked for permissions in Dropbox and Memory-Map on my phone (Huawei P20Lite). Dropbox Camera & Storage on; Contacts off - so nothing about read permissions. Memory-Map has Location & Storage on; no other options.

It sounds like there might a change in how the Memory Map shares files. I'd recommend contacting the developers of the app to see if they have any more information on this matter.
