can't write tags to certain jpg files

Hello All

I just found out interesting issue on my Daminion 6.8 (2380) Standalone. It seems like I'm not able to write any tags into metadata of part of my jpg files. With most of the files it works fine, but with some of them not. These are pictures takes by the same camera, often on the same day. I checked the read/write right and they are ok (and the same) for both cases. I only noticed that files into which I'm not able to write have already fewer metadata items (like exposure details etc.). Is there a possibility that part of the files have some kind of corrupted metadata not allowing to add new items to it? I'm attaching the example (I'm not able to add tags to 1203). Is there some way of overcoming it?

Thanks,

Szymon

Small update of the issue. I experimented a bit with the files and I found out the following. 

- As mentioned, in part of the jpg files I'm not able to edit metadata via Daminion. When I do action -> write tags to file and than action -> show all metadata, I see no tags applied in Daminion catalog.

- I'm able to edit the metadata in issue files outside Daminion from windows (in Windows via properties -> detail -> adding some random tag name)

- After adding tag in Windows, Daminion sees the change (via actions -> show all metadata)

- After adding tag in Windows, Daminion is also now able to edit the tags :D. When I do action -> write tags to file, I can see tags in metadata (both via Windows and Daminion). So in some way editing metadata in Windows in unblocking this also in Daminion. I was checking the access rights to the file before and after and there seem to be no change. 

I would say that it is or Windows issue with some not visible write/read rights that is unblocked when editing tags (although I tried also moving file between folders or even renaming them and it didn't help), or Daminion have some issue with writing to metadata of some (perhaps corrupted?) files and Windows has capability of overcoming it and somehow fixing the file structure?

Hello Daria

Thank you for response :). I was already experimenting with this. Issue is present also when I start the Daminion as administrator. Considering that issue files have for some reason less information in metadata from the start (comparing to the files that show no issue), I tend to belive that there is something wrong on the line file-Daminion and Daminion can't write to those files (caused by metadata structure or corruption?). But its really strange that simple metadata edition done outside Daminion is fixing it.

Best regards,

Szymon
