failed rename/moving of converted file (it was deleted)

Dec 5, 2015 at 4:13 PM
I have a WMC PC recording tv shows and also running MCE buddy. I just started testing out MCE buddy and I dumped two files in which converted and transferred to my NAS just fine. The next test would be to schedule a recording and see how it works without manually adding the files. I set a recording for 6am news. Later that day I checked my NAS to see if it was there and it wasn't. I checked the log to see if it even tried to convert it because the original file was still there (i have it set to archive converted files). The log shows that it did convert the file, however near the end when it goes to rename the file it says it cannot find it. The file was renamed or deleted. So it doesn't rename it, it doesn't transfer the converted file to my nas and the process ends. Can anyone help me figure out why this happened and how to solve this problem?

The log is here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7nqaCCJU_bcWENzc0VrSk9wbWs/view?usp=sharing

Some third party program is interfering with your files (maybe an antivirus). Just before the failure cannot find file error, see these lines:

MCEBuddy tries to read the properties of the converted file and the permission is denied, it's locked by a third party program and then possibly deleted.

weird. The first two files I tried manually converted, renamed and moved just fine. What would be different about an automatic conversion? I did some testing by turning off my firewall and it didn't work. Still denied it. I restarted my pc and now it is working again. What could be causing this?
