Description of Problem:

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Go to Link ( works normally off main hard drive ) by compiling off source tree on SD Drive

Actual Results:

Get this error.

/Volumes/MicroSD/richard_dev2/trunkRel/Products/iCropTrakApp/MTOUCH: Error MT2001: Could not link assemblies. Reason: Sharing violation on path /Volumes/MicroSD/richard_dev2/trunkRel/Products/iCropTrakApp/obj/iPhone/Release/mtouch-cache/64/PreBuild/System.Runtime.Serialization.dll.mdb (MT2001) (iCropTrakApp)

Expected Results:

Not to get a sharing violation and have the link complete.

How often does this happen? 

Everytime I try to compile and build off the SD Drive.

Hello Richard

By any chance, is your MicroSD partition formatted in FAT32?
Comment 2 richard 2016-09-22 15:35:20 UTC
It says ExFAT. On the other other hand it also says it was created in 1969 - I didn't know this technology existed then !
Comment 3 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2016-09-22 15:44:33 UTC
Yeah, this is a known problem.

Maybe try formatting using some different file system.
