    Hi,

    aftter upgrading to Leopard I can'y save changes I made to the shortcut password field.

    I get the following error message:

    ---

    These settings cannot be used because you do not have permission to save a file there.

    Try changing the permissions of the destination folder, or saving to a different folder.

    ---

    Which destination folder iis fetch talking about?

    Hi,

    Could you please describe exactly what steps you took in Fetch that caused this error?

    That will help us figure out what it's talking about.

    Thanks,

    HI,

    these are the steps:

    1. From shortcort menu -> New Shortcut
    2. Add Name, HostName, Username
    3. Add password
    4. Click OK
    5. Errormessage as described

    If i don't fill in a password and click ok, the shortcut is saved whithout any problem. If you edit the newly made shortcut and than add a password you also get the error.

    Hi,

    the problem has been resolved and is directly connected to a Leopard Keychain issue.

    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=306862

    Thanks for the quick response and maybe this info can help others with the same problem.

    Mac OS X 10.5: Keychain cannot be found message after upgrade install

    Issue or symptom

    When an application attempts to access the keychain for the first time in Mac OS X 10.5, a password prompt appears. Even if a correct password is entered and the "Remember this password in my keychain" checkbox is selected, this alert may appear:

    Keychain "name" cannot be found to store "sampleitem"
    Your keychain may have been renamed, deleted, or it's on a unmounted volume.
    You can then click Cancel or Reset To Defaults. The alert may appear again.

    If Reset To Defaults is clicked two times, a new, empty keychain will be created. Previously-stored passwords will not be present in the new keychain, but this issue should no longer occur.

    Products affected

    Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard
    Mac OS X 10.5 Server
    Solution

    To recover the original keychain with the former passwords, follow these steps:

    If you have not clicked Reset To Defaults yet

    Go to ~/Library/Preferences/
    Delete the "com.apple.security.plist" file
    If you have clicked Reset To Defaults one time

    Go to ~/Library/Keychains/
    Rename the "login_renamed1.keychain" file to "login.keychain"
    If you have clicked Reset To Defaults twice

    Go to ~/Library/Keychains/
    Delete login.keychain
    Rename the "login_renamed1.keychain" file to "login.keychain"
