Error copying app.

I get this error when trying to copy my app. Could someone decipher it for me please?

This first image is the error message I (usually) get when trying to make a copy.

The second is when I tried to copy again, after deleting the appsheet/data folder.

May I ask why have you deleted appsheet/data folder and may I also ask how do you expect from the system to create a copy of an app when you remove its container?

@Levent_KULACOGLU Because the system failed to copy the app but left the folder appsheet/data/ behind. So I tried again to make a copy with the same name and the same showed the second horrible mess of an error message. I figured it was having trouble with me using the same name, so I deleted the folder.

I thought you have deleted the appsheet/data folder, not the app’s own container under that. Sorry for misunderstanding. When copying an app, it’s a good idea to change the name of the app actually.
