    Question Error unable to open File...for writing.

    Running Release 16.6 and getting the following error when I attempt to rip to a local drive with 2.5TB free space:

    Error ripping to FLAC, 'Track 3' to 'E:\Music\lossless\Phish\Rift\03 Phish - Lengthwise.flac'
    Error unable to open File 'E:\Music\lossless\Phish\Rift\03 Phish - Lengthwise._' for writing. [clEncoder::BeginConversion]
    Things I have tried:
    - Manually created a folder and text file in the destination path/folder successfully
    - Ran CD Ripper as admin
    - Tried all three 'When Ripping' settings in CD Ripper's Options

    Are there other troubleshooting options that I could try? I have searched the forum and have found many threads with solutions that aren't relevant to my setup.

    Drive E is your external drive? and you are able to copy files to it?

    Itís an internal drive, and I have created a folder and text file in the destination folder.

    Yes, that was the cause. I'm running Windows 10 Home 1903 (18362.388).

    Thanks for the assistance.
