Question: Logic X (10.4.1) OSStatus error -120 on High Sierra

Hi All,

I wondered if anybody else was getting this same OSStatus Error -120 whilst using Logic X (10.4.1) or seen/heard of it before?

It pops up the error box everytime I record audio and delete the take - it comes up with The operation couldn’t be completed. (OSStatus error -120.)

It does delete the file, but it's annoying this comes up everytime I want to delete a take after recording. This issue has been going on for quite a few versions, so not just pertaining to 10.4.1.

Many thanks.

Hi, thanks for the response.

I thought so too, but it's weird - I just record to my internal SSD, Users>Username>Music>Logic> I always save to a 'folder' format and not a 'package', because I like the older song file method, and so i can keep all mix bounces contained in one folder.

Everything (audio files, etc) get stored as per usual, and i've not lost any files due to this error, the pop up is just annoying. For e.g, I record a vocal take; if it's a bad take and decide I don't want it - delete, then the error pops up.

I will try recording to an external drive and see if it says the same thing.

Just tested recording to ext hd and to desktop - it works fine no 120 error pop up. So there it's permissions issue more likely, recording into the music>logic folder.

I've checked all the folder permissions for each level USER, USERNAME, MUSIC and LOGIC folders, and added admin and user read/write permissions to those. Maybe there's a different permissions I need to set? Hmm.

Is there an easy way to reset permissions on a folder and it's sub folders? Gone is the repair permissions tool from disk utility.

Many thanks,

Click on the little cogwheel at the bottom of the Get Info window and choose Apply to Enclosed Items.

You can also quit Logic Pro X, rename the folder to 'OLD_Logic', then relaunch Logic Pro X.

Logic Pro X will create a new Logic folder for you again and you can move the content from the old folder to the new one.

Hope that helps.
