Build failed from external hard drive
Dear Unreal Staff,
I experienced an issue when I try to build a project from an external harddrive. UE4 Editor is under "C:\Program Files\Epic Games\4.6" (SSD, NTFS). The project is under "G:\Unreal Projects\" (HDD, exFAT).
When I build a copy of that project from C:\ everything works fine.
I get errors about "Date Mismatch" of some ThirdParty binaries, this time it's Vorbis. I already re-installed 4.6. Before I had errors from PhysX. The date difference is about 2 seconds. Weird.
Is their an option to ignore date mismatches?
I've investigated this issue and believe it is because of exFAT on your external drive. That file system only has a precision of 2 seconds on its last-modified timestamps, and we cause retries when they are out by more than 1, hence the repeated failing.
This should be in 4.7 and will hopefully solve your problem. Thanks for reporting it. :-)
