I got a Permission Denied error when running a SnapShooter backup.

SnapShooter’s backup scripts run from the tmp folder. If your tmp folder is mounted with the NOEXEC flag, bash is not allowed to run the script, causing an error:

/bin/bash: /tmp/rclone-aws Permission Denied

To fix this error, you can remount the tmp directory with exec permissions:

mount -o remount exec /tmp

Alternatively, in SnapShooter, you can set the backup engine to use the user’s home directory as a target location instead of the tmp directory by editing the server connection.
