Unable to save files from a network share RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running Win 7 on client and server 2003 w/AD. My user is unable to save files that are in a network share. All the rights are properly set, even assigned him domain admin rights temporarily. No go. But, if he logs in to a different PC-XP he is able to modify the file without any problems. If I login to his Win 7 machine, I'm able to modify the network file. The problem only occurs when he logs in to his Win7 machine! So, it is something with his profile on that specific Win7 PC. He can rename the file and save it without any problems. Any ideas? I've searched around for ideas and possible solutions without any luck. Any help would be appreciated.

    Error message: The document could not be saved. The file may be read-only, or another user may have it open. Please save the document with a different name or in a different folder.

  • I would rename his profile folder in order for a new profile to be created at the next logon.

  • I have a user with the same problem when trying to edit then save a PDF.  The document could not be saved. The file may be read-only or another user may have it open. Please save the document with a different name or in a different folder.  When I log in with my support account I get that message so it is not the user's profile. 

    Does anyone have a solution?
