Burp Suite 2.0 doesn't play well with Google Drive File Stream

Mikail May 16, 2019 10:22PM UTC

I've had issues with Burp and GDrive File Stream on Windows 10 (fresh install).
Specifically, automatic backups fail and the explicit saving of a project in the GDrive location (G:/ by default) results in the following error message:

"Failed to create new project file: java.nio.channels.OverlappingFileLockException"

The problem persists even after marking the destination directory as 'Available Offline' in GDrive.

Unfortunately, this has resulted in me losing hours worth of data as I was under the impression that my data was being autosaved.

Mikail, the error message you are encountering occurs when two instances of Burp try to access the same project file. Are you running two instances of Burp?

Have you used Google Drive File Stream with Burp Suite projects successfully?
