Error Cannot find entity with name

Description

I work at the Mayo Clinic as part of Lymphoma of Epidemiology of Outcomes project. (syn3168214). Recently, I am having issues automatically uploading files to Synapse with R. I get the error below for some files, but not all.

This is happening in many places within our Files / Data Share / LEO### folders.

Error in findExistingEntity(entityAsList$name, entityAsList$parentId) :

Cannot find entity with name WashU_Tissue.csv and parent syn8076498.

Calls: syn.push ... synStoreMethod -> createEntityMethod -> findExistingEntity

Execution halted

In this example, the file I am attempting to update (WashU_Tissue.csv) is in the correct folder syn8076498. I found out while playing around, that if I manually update the file first, then I can then update the file using R.

Do you know what this error is and how to resolve it? I would prefer not to manually update ~200 files.

Thanks,

Shaun Riska
