MS Office cannot save in Drive File Stream G: stating there is a "sharing violation"

Q: MS Office cannot save in Drive File Stream G: stating there is a "sharing violation"

HI

Blow Error is happening when using Drive File Stream drive and folders.

Error:
MS Excel 2016
Your changes could not be saved to "g:\my drive...." because of a sharing violation. Try saving to a different file.

Similar problems happening in Word as well.

All other programs are saving properly.

Excel and Word save new files properly but when working on an existing file and I press save then the file is not saved and the error pops up and I have to save under a new file. Excel creates a temporary file with random #'s e.g.: 7A4764

I looked online and Microsoft said that I need modify/delete privileges to be able to save to "network drives" I've given full admin privileges to all user accounts and still the same issue.

Everything was working fine until 3 days ago when Windows had a security

I've uninstalled the Windows Updates. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling MS Office and no luck. I've uninstalled Drive File Stream and installed a new version and still no luck. I tried creating a new user account on the same computer and tried running DFS on there and tried saving there and no luck.

I'm running Windows 10 64 bit and MS Office 2016.

I'm currently using Back up & Sync and Office is saving using Google Drive folder.

Please advise on a fix.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

XP Home (installed SP2 recently, which MIGHT have something to do with this?).

Just saved two word docs and a bmp file, all separately. All three times I saw that a new location has been added to the Save As drop-down menu. It didn't open to My Documents folder but was in the general folder list of the whole computer. The location was called "FTP File Locations." It's never appeared on the Save As menu before. This made me think of the file/print sharing control, which is now located in the Windows Firewall, but I don't use that Firewall, I turned it off to use Norton. What was FTP Locations? And is there any way to disable file/print sharing without using the Windows Firewall? (These may be the same thing, I don't know.) Also, in Network Connections, I thought I'd find file/print sharing control there, but now XP wants me to run a whole Network Wizard thing..I'm afraid I'll somehow set up a network instead! or enable all kinds of things..I don't want to create a disaster here.

(My son installed an FTP program months ago for work he was doing, but the program was removed. I just searched for it, it's definitely gone.)

This is a stand-alone, non-networked home computer.

P.S. I saved another Word doc and now it's back to opening to My Documents folder as usual..now I can't find the FTP Locations anywhere.

I have run a lot of anti virus software and nothing gets rid of (what I think is) the trojan.zonebac error. The only reason it is such a problem is the fact that when I open Internet Explorer, a window pops up stating that it is configuring microsoft office XP professional. I have to click cancel a couple times and then it finally takes me to the website. This same box pops up when I open Instant Messenger and Microsoft office applications. Any guidance would be appreciated! Thanks!

Has any other business gotten this? We got a letter from Microsoft corperation that their Office 2003 suite contained 3rd party code and they require for us to stay licensed and compliant that all installs have to be upgraded to SP 2 and then to SP 3 when it gets released...

It does not go into specifics but is on Microsoft company paper and is addressed from them so I am not thinking this to be some kind of HOAX... but I can't find anything mentioned online about it at all on the internet.

Has anyone else seen this does anyone have a link to the story as to who the third party and why they are sending out this letter and what was infringed upon enough to require a mailing to customers? (PS I only spent about 5 mins looking for it under search terms like Office 2003 service pack 3rd party code.)

Previously the  "Save Picture"  box would put a web generated title in the box and automatically selected JPEG.  Now the title box reads "untitled" and the only file options offered are "png" & "bmp" 

Please note that a similar post has appeared, but the solution did not match the fault.  I'm seeking to restore the automatic response to save picture, that might have been upset by antivirus clean-up programme.

hello all,

posted last week in regards to a "save as" problem on a networked drive, thanks for your guidance. I have since found the problem was misstated or misunderstood by me originally. So here is the real problem.

a friend of mine accesses many files off of a drive f: on a remote win98se system, she is using XP home. There is no problem accessing opening or altering files the problem comes when for instance an edited word (newreport.doc) file is edited and then you attempt to "save as" a new file name (i.e newreport2.doc), back to the f: drive. When you do this the following error/dialog occurs.

"the folder f:newreport2 isn't accessible or the folder may be located on an unavailable volume or protected with a password"

there is no folder i am trying to access or save, it is a Word file? It is like the OS is recognizing or thinking i am trying to access a folder by the name of the document i am trying to save. So it is seeing newreport2.doc as a folder trying to be opened not a document trying to be saved. Any ideas why this would be? or how to fix it?

i would greatly appreciate any info. thanks so much and have a blessed day,

Boutros

ps. There is a round about way to save the file, by copying it from the f: drive, to c:, editing, "save as" and then copy it back to f: but i hope to find another "real" solution. thank you

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

Hello Everyone

I'm really hoping there is someone here who can help me with what should be an easy issue. This might be something related to workgroup vs home group but I think I have that understood.

I have a windows 7 machine with the same workgroup set as my two XP machines. I then went in and set four harddrives root directories to share. Now what is weird and very frustrating is that two of the hard drives the other computers can get into just like one would expect. However the other two drives are behaving completely different. One drive it just gives a permissions error message right away. The other it lets me access one layer of folders but then gives the same message when I try to open any one of them.

It's very frustrating, I set up the sharing just with simple right click- the drive say share and "Everyone" read/write/full, so I don't understand how some can be interacting differently than others.

Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance

Gary

A:LAN File Sharing "7" to "XP" Permissions issue

No solution is immediately apparent to me, but am I correctly assuming were dealing with all NTFS drives here?
And are the four hard drives on the XP machine?
Did you name each share for each drive? Try mapping the shared drive(s) that you now can not with their drive letter followed by $.

For example...

//192.168.1.20/d$

...and see what happens.

Also, make sure each machine being shared from has a password set. You can not share with a blank (non-existant) pass.

It's a mole hill of a problem, but it is a bit annoying to have to click on my principal drive ("C") every time I'm doing a "save". I have enclosed an excerpt of a screen shot of my "save as" window to display how the default drive being automatically selected is the "D" drive rather than the "C" drive that I use primarily. To be honest, I don't know whether this can be corrected by a software change, or whether it's the way the two hard drives are connected in my computer.

I'd appreciate it if anyone has a suggestion to offer if there is a way to make my "C" drive the default selection when I attempt to do a save function. Thanks

I have a Windows issue (happening on Win XP, Vista and 7), that when I try saving a document, normally the Save dialogue box appears and "Save as type: " would normally show the file extension. Instead, now it's only listing "All Files (*.*)" and adding the file extenison to the "File name: " box just above.
I have also checked / unchecked the "Hide extensions for known file types" in the "Folder Options", both settings not changing anything to the Save box.
Had anyone come across this issue, and how can I once again have the File extentions in the 'drop down' list instead of just "All Files"?
Thank you for any help.

A:Microsoft Office 2003 "Save as" dialogue box issue

Hello John, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The "Save as" available file extension options will vary per program. By default, there should be a drop down menu available where the "All Files (*.*)" is to select from what is available for it though. Since there isn't, you might consider a repair install.



Hope this helps,

Over the past year I have experienced erratic problems when using "save as" in Word, Excel and Powerpoint. What happens is that the Office application gets "locked" when trying to "save as". I need to restart the program and after X number of "retries" I can eventually save the file with a new file name. I see no systematics in the origin of files (the producer/sender) or the underlying Office program version although I seem to handle the majority of my own files. In some cases even the internal Explorer gets locked and I need to restart my computer. I have used the Windows repair function in the Control panel - but it does not help. I can live with the problem - but it is terribly annoying!
Would appreciate help from the forum on how to fix it.

Whenever I try to save any document in any Office 2013 program, nothing happens. When I press File>Save as F12, or ctrl+s, (on a new document) nothing happens. Any normal way to save a file, even saving customizations, does nothing. I just get the "working" mouse for a half a second. Nothing opens, but I can still work in the document (so I know it didn't just come up in the background). Has anyone else had this problem? Is there any way to fix it?

Relevant: I have Office 2003 installed. I've heard that causes problems. I'd be willing to uninstall them both and reinstall in the recommended order, but I'd lose my customizations. I can't save my customizations, because that requires the save as dialog.

A:Office 2013 won't open "save as" dialog.

Does this problem occur with both version of Office or only with Office 2013. Also are you having any problems with any other programs on your computer.

You could try repairing Office 2013. To do that open Control Panel, select Programs & Features, scroll down to Microsoft Office 2013, right click on it & select Change & this will show a couple of Repair options for you to try.

I have a Dell XPS 410 with Vista and I get a annoy warning every time I use "Save As" to save a file by this method.... I open the "Save As" window, click on an existing file, modify the name slightly, so that it is different from the original, and then click OK.

A Warning appears indicating I am about to overwrite an existing file, and the filename in the warning box is the one I clicked on originally, before I modified it. If I ignore the warning, everything works fine. The original file is untouched and a file with the new name appears as it should.

After getting no help from Corel, as they were unable to duplicate the problem, and Microsoft, who totally brushed me off, I searched without success to see if anyone else experienced this problem.

After one year of Vista updates, WordPad has miraculously cured itself but I still experience the same problem with Paint Shop Pro.

For example, files named "001.jpg" and "002.jpg" exist in a folder. In "PAINT SHOP PRO PHOTO XI" I open "001.jpg", then click "Save As". Instead of typing in a new filename, I click on "002.jpg" in the list of files, which then appears in the filename box. Next I modify the filename to "003.jpg" and click OK. This results in an erroneous warning message that I'm about to overwrite "002.jpg" ... Read more

[Note: I apologize in advance for the second-hand information... I will be seeing this in person in the morning, but thought I might go armed with some insight from you all. TIA!]

A daughter of a friend just bought Win7 Pro x64 from her university bookstore, and when she put the DVD into her laptop drive, she is greeted with a "wrong version" or "incorrect version" error message. She tells me she is running Vista (I am assuming x86) and that she has ~4GB of memory. Has anybody ever heard of something similar happening?

She told me that she has almost all of her info on an EHD, so I told her to backup whatever else she wanted to keep off of the HDD and when I visit tomorrow we will attempt to do the install, most likely a custom install for a fresh start (laptop ~2 years old).

Since I have read in several places here on the forums that the key included with the disc is good for both x64 and x86 versions of Win7, if it turns out that she has <4GB of RAM, is it possible to install the x86 from the disc? If so, is it easy to locate? If not, is there someplace we can dl it from? She tells me that she uses it mostly for Office (reports, presentations, etc) and used to run games on it (not sure what type), so I don't know if she would "need" x64 unless she has 4GB+ of RAM, right?

Any info would be greatly appreciated. If there are any specific questions I should be asking of her or things to look for when I am in front of the lapt... Read more

A:Win7 x64 install error: stating "wrong version" on Vista laptop... ?

as far as i understood you entered the Key that came with Windows 7 DVD, if so then she should go back to the store, cuz the key is wrong and ask for at least trying to install it infront of her. and for running windows 7 smoothly you need at least 2GB ram, Core 2 Duo processor with 2GH frequency and 3 MB L2 Cach, in this case it will run smoothly.
Now a starting fix will be: Check if the processor is compatible with x64, also when is the message appearing after doing what?
cuz i don't know what to say until i know where the message starts appearing

One of our Lotus 1-2-3 v9.5 users running Windows 98 is getting a "File is Corrupt" error when trying to save to our network server running Windows 2000 Server. However, after the user gets that message and clicks "Ok" to get out of that dialog box, she can use the "Save As..." file option and save the file to her local hard drive. From there, she can move it back to the server. Things work, but in a very tedious process. At times, the user will not get the error, and it will save directly to the network server. The rest of the user's department doesn't seem to be having similar problems.
We did think that it could be a network problem, however, the user never has problems getting disconnected from our Novell Groupwise email server, or when accessing Excel, Word, Access, other files etc. It seems like Lotus is the only program that the machine is having trouble with.
Could it be that either something causes 123 to close it's network connection, 123 running on Win98 does not for some reason like the connection to the Win2k server? Can anyone suggest some sort of network/NIC analyzer software (prefer GNUish/Freeish, as this is only 1 client, so large expensive software packages are out of the question) that we could possibly use to see what's going on with the connection from the user's Win98 machine, to the Win2k server while accessing a Lotus 1-2-3 file? As I said before, strange thing is everything else seems to work... Read more

A:Lotus 123 v9.5 giving "File Internet Security Corrupt" when trying to save

1. Copy the NSF file into a new local location that has Lotus Notes
2. Using the Command prompt go to Lotus Notes home. (i.e. c:\lotus\notes )
3. Run the following commands:
(Enter the user's Notes password if prompted)
3a. nfixup.exe <filename>.nsf
3b. ncompact.exe -c <filename>.nsf
4. Once the file has been fixed and compacted. Rename the original NSF in source (i.e. _backup or _corrupt) to distinguish the corrupt version from the fixed one.
5. Add the fixed NSF to source and process in Clearwell as needed.

6. Also there is one more methods to get back .nsf file via https://www.repairtoolbox.com/lotusnotesrepair.html Lotus Notes Repair Toolbox

Greetings!
For all my Microsoft Office products (Office 2010), when I go to initially save or open a file, the default location is the Documents folder. I rarely use this opting instead for a specific folder on my dedicated Data drive (in this case my E drive). Is there any way to change the default location? Note: I am NOT asking to move the documents folder to a different location. I am interested in using a different location altogether. Is this possible? I am using W7

Thanks for you help again,
Pradhan
 

A:Solved: Changing folder in which "Open/Save File" lands

Go to File, then Options, then click the "Save" button, and change the "Default File Location" option. You may have to do this for Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc... separately though.

Hi,
Whenever we download a file, we save it on different location. Every time  we need to click the arrow, side of the save option to access the 'Save As' option. So Is there any option/Group policy setting to set the default option to 'Save As' or replace
the 'Save' with 'Save As' ?
Thanks

Just a few days ago I noticed a strange problem. I was downloading a program with Firefox (latest version) and the download dialogue froze up when I opted to save the file. I thought Firefox was being buggy, so I closed it and reopened, but the problem persisted. My next step was to reboot. No luck. I ran a full virus scan with Norton, and downloaded AdAware to see if spyware could be causing a problem. I was clean. I later found that if I just wait a really long time, the dialogue box to choose the file's location eventually comes up. After this, the problem seems to be gone until I reboot. In other words, once I wait forever for the box to pop up, the next time I download something it pops up instantly like it should. I unfortunately noticed that this problem wasn't unique to firefox. I clicked to add a file to my Winamp playlist, and the same thing happened. Winamp froze and a few minutes later the Open File box popped up and everything was fine. It also happened with AIM when I tried to send a file to a friend. This problem was very annoying to google because the combination of words describing the problem comes up with irrelavent hits. I'm very computer literate but this problem confounds me. I'd appreciate any help or insight. Hijack This log available upon request.
EDIT: I'm running WINXP SP2 fully updated to my knowledge, and my computer specs are listed.

Whenever I save something on Win 7 with the standard "Save" dialog (such as used by Firefox or Microsoft Word), the filename is still there in the drop-down list for others to see. Where is that list stored? A search with RegEdit does NOT match any of the filenames listed there (I even do a partial search without case sensitivity, to no avail) so I don't know where they're being stored. It's very puzzling.

I have links on it that open executable (exe) programs that are also on the Hard drive.

whenever i click a link, however, i get a message that says;

"do you want to open the file, or save it to your computer?"

The option to always do the selected action is greyed-out.

How do i make it so that whenever i launch a program through a link on my desktop, it doesn't ask, and just opens the program?

When I save as my MS Office (v2010) files on network drive it shows error "file is busy, please try again later", but actually it creats new file on given name on save as but all BLANK!!!!!

I read dirrerent places that it could be fault of antivirus so I tried to disable my antivirus and it works fine !!!! so I need to know how to disable only network protection function on my antivirus program which is KASPERSKY INTERNET SECURITY 2011, so I could use my files on network with security on local PC.
 

A:Network Security "on save as file is busy error"

Sounds like to me, that you need to use a different AV program or find the setting within your AV program that is blocking the saving.

I am getting ready to install windows 98 again on my new system, and I'd rather not have to re-enter all my email addresses into the address book. Anyone know how to save this file? I've checked out several files marked "address book," but none of them seem to store my addresses.

Thanks!

I am not postitive but i think they are saved in .WAB or .CVS files. With OE open you can go to files>export>address book and i think that it can be saved to a floppy. I tried it as a .cvs(comma separated values) and saved it to floppy which when opened looked like an Excel file. I tried the other option but had no option i could see to save it to a floppy and even though it said it was exported, i dont know where it went.
