TeraFly crashes when importing a volume from a storage mounted in read-only mode

Detailed description

TeraFly (together with Vaa3D) crashes when a volume is imported from a storage mounted in read-only mode. This is probably due to the fact that TeraFly may need to write some metadata (volume map[vmap.bin], volume info[mdata.bin]) if it's not already present. 

A message error should be shown indicating that writing permissions are necessary to use TeraFly.

I added many throw exception points when attempting to write/read any file. It works for me (on Ubuntu), but still need to be tested on MacOS X when importing volumes from NTFS storages.
