  • Currently having the same exact problem with IE10 on Windows 7 64-bit.

    I'm also saving to a network location, it's a re-directed downloads folder which resides on a file server.

  • Hi,


    In my lab, it was able to download small file in the network location, but the big file showed the save result.

    However, you can find the downloaded file and change the extension name to use the file.

    In addition, you can also save the file locally and then copy it to the network location.

  • Hi,

    You can find the downloaded file and change the extension name to use the file. It has been already downloaded.

  • This is a frustrating problem for me, too.  It seems that his only happens if I sign into Windows 8 using a Microsoft account.  If I use a local account, I am able to save files to network drives.  Are there any solutions for this other than copying the file after it has been downloaded to a local drive?

  • At my situation it`s on a local account.

    And it`s random (also with .pdf-files).

    Download 3 files from HP.com --> 1 file will be saved, other 2 files --> the error specified.

    What to do?

  • Bump because this is still happening to me with IE10 Windows 7 and trying to download to a redirected folder.

  • Same here.  If I go to Settings > Internet Explorer > and click Reset under the Reset Internet Explorer Settings window my problem appears to go away although it eventually comes back.

    Is this Microsoft's recommendation?   To have people change the filename after a failed download?   Has anyone found a solution that we can actually deploy to our clients for this problem.

  • Here also still looking for a solution to deploy...

  • Still looking for a fix also ... is there any hope, or should I just use Chrome from now on?!?

  • My solution, encountered on a Windows 8.1 (eval, running in a virtualbox VM session) was to switch to using Firefox as my default browser.  Good luck.

    That's not a solution, that's a workaround at best.

  • I am also having this problem.  I've had this with two different machines now.  One I ended up totally rebuilding because even a new profile wouldn't correct it.  I did find that going back to IE8 solved.  Chrome also solves.  But as William states, that is a work-around, not a solution.  I would really like to see a solution to this so that I don't have yet another machine to rebuild.

  • Still no solution for this issue??

    Please refer to the details in the proposed answer and compare with your (undisclosed?) details.

    Also, looks like the first example should have been trying to download from an alternate host

    http://vso-convertxtodvd.en.softonic.com/download

     

    NTF from that site (at least on IE11).
