I’m running the ipfs daemon on Windows. I run it as Administrator, so it should have all the rights it needs, but still I get the “Error writing block to datastore: Access is denied.” from now and then. My datastore is allowed to grow to 25GBs, but ipfs blocks folder is only 32MB and datastore is 900kb. Sometimes I have connections to around 500 nodes, sometimes it drops to 0 until I restart the daemon.

This issue is being tracked on github: https://github.com/ipfs/go-ipfs/issues/3971
When I was using the default datastore the issue seemed to have been helped by disabling Windows indexing and antivirus on the directory, but that didn’t seem to totally address it. However, I haven’t gotten this error since switching to the badger datastore (currently still experimental, but planned to be the default at some point in the future).
Instructions for using badger are here.
Thanks a lot @leerspace!
I’ll follow the issue on GitHub and I will probably switch to badger datastore as well in the meantime.
I guess I should go ahead and close my post here - Error messages/phone tethering
Should have known to use the search first lol
i got this error:
e[0;37m16:54:35.094 e[31mERROR e[0;34m bitswap: e[0mError writing block to datastore: rename E:\Users\xxx.ipfs\blocks\AI\put-214307124 E:\Users\xxx.ipfs\blocks\AI\CIQOGLCIEMXAHJLDCM7VQ44JSCPCPFIGMBVMNX2WV3LK3OZUP25HAIA.data: Access is denied.
@leerspace I followed your guide
first : >ipfs init --profile=badgerds
initializing IPFS node at E:\Users\xxx.ipfs
Error: ipfs configuration file already exists!
Reinitializing would overwrite your keys.
so i delete ~/.ipfs , start it over
ipfs init --profile=badgerds
initializing IPFS node at E:\Users\xxx.ipfs
generating 2048-bit RSA keypair…done
Error: Unable to mmap RDWR log file: MapViewOfFile: The parameter is incorrect.
what’s wrong ? could you help?
OS: Microsoft Windows Pro 1709 [Version 10.0.16299.371]
ipfs version 0.4.15
It sounds like a permissions issue. Are you able to manually create a file in the .ipfs directory in your user folder?
manually creat a new file is ok , here is content of .ipfs after execute “ipfs init --profile=badgerds”
it seems ti had used badgerds ，when execute " ipfs daemon" , come out the same error .
Are you sure that’s a fresh ipfs repo? Your screenshot shows that it’s 2 GB. A fresh IPFS repo should be <100 kB.
FWIW I can’t recreate the error or the abnormally large repository size you’re getting on my Windows 10 install with v0.4.15.
Where did you download IPFS from?
i delete .ipfs directory ,start it over again. it comes out the same parameter incorrect error, and the size of badgerds is the same 2GB.
a few days ago after fresh setup, in the webui i try to download a file about 40MB. after a long long time ,it never showed me the end, and in the cmd it show the “…Access is denied” error. so i closed it and the ipfs became 2GB, i don’t know why ,that’s the story.
