Unchecked BSAs

Question

Ok, not really an issue as more of an annoyance. I tried searching for a solution to this several times, but come up with results that do not apply, mostly due to unsure how to word it right for a search. So, when ever I turn on my PC from a shutdown or if it is restarted, I then open up Mod Organizer. If I look at the Archives tab on the right hand side. Depending on which profile I have open, there is always a few bsas no longer checked, so I have to re-enable them. Never fails, constantly having to make sure all bsas are activated. Always the same ones. On one profile it affects, The STEP Vanilla and DLC optimized textures standard.bsa and also the modern brawl bugs fix.bsa. The on another profile it affects the Unofficial High Resolution Patch bsa and the Better Weapon Swings bsa. I am using Mod Organizer 1.3.11.

The only thing(s) that could cause that are to do with the file: archives.txt in whichever profile you have active. That file lists all the BSAs and their status. If another process is operating on that file any changes you make inside MO's UI may not take or the permissions on that file are set so the specific MO instance can't write to it. This last one is why I always advise against users running MO as admin at any time, as if that file was created during that process it may still need admin rights to edit it later on and MO may not always be started as such.

 

Try copying that profie using MO's 'Profile manager' and make any changes to BSAs as needed and see if that profile too gets reset after a system restart.

So far this morning, I am good to go. But what fixed it, is something you said mentioning permissions. So, I have copied my Mod Organizer folder and the entire contents of my Skyrim folder, over from a few different OS installation/re-installations, I thought maybe my permissions have gotten screwed up at some point in between. Sure enough I had several unknown permissions, plus it wasn't giving my current account ownership of most of the files and folders within. It had an unknown account listed as ownership. Any who, I corrected this for not just the Mod Organizer folder, but the entire Skyrim folder as well. I just made sure, where applicable, I had ownership, and then removed all old account permissions. If any file or folder had TrustedInstaller or another important windows account listed as owner, i left it alone.

So, I think I can turn the page on this one, thanks.
