I005: FileIOCreateRetry: CreateFileW() returned ERROR_SHARING_VIOLATION, failing with FILEIO_CANCELLED
VMware Workstation Pro 15.5.7 build-17171714
Ubuntu 20.04 desktop guest VM with open-vm-tools
Steps to reproduce
Version 15.5 is out of contract support so I couldn't contact VMware.
Upgrading to version 16 stopped the crash, but you cannot copy a folder while an Excel file is open inside it. You will get "Cannot scan local directory. You might not have permission to perfrom the operation. Canceling teh file copy operation."
So upgrading stops the hard crash. You have to remember to close any locked files in the directory before you copy it.
