Failed to safe modifications to the server

Hi all,


so I'm just trying to load a table but receive the error message "failed to safe modifications to the server". 


Looking at previous users with this issue, this seems to be an issue related to the feaure preview "Store datasets using enhanced metadata format". 


This feature is rolled out now with the September update so I can't find it in the feature preview options anymore, is there any way to turn this off?

Ok- so apart from there being a potential issue with this feature for some users - am I correct to assume this feature can currently not be disabled in options as it is not in preview anymore?

@Anonymous , I listen to some people who are facing issues with Enhanced metadata.


It is the same issue. Disable this or report.
