Can't do a "Save As" to a network drive using Word 2007

By jbonin ·
I am getting close to the end of my rope. I am running Vista Business and Office 2007. When I open a document in Word it opens fine. When I try to do a "Save As" (a .doc file not the new format) to a network drive, I get an error "There has been a network or file permission error. The network connection may be lost." and the file is not written. I can copy and paste files to and from the network drive using Windows Explorer and (surprisingly) I can open a network file with Word and do a "Save As" to a local drive without any problems. I have tried the above with Windows XP Pro and Office 2007 and the same error occurs.

I have looked at the various Microsoft web sites for any help but I have not found anything that will help me correct the problem.

Any ideas?

CA setting fixed problem

by nicks In reply to Protected Network Drives ...

Thanks for the fix. We had some very unusual circumstances. Some PCs with Office 2007 could save to network drives. Those with problems could save to certain servers but not others. Unchecking the Network dirves box in CA did the trick.

Can't save Office 2007 files to network - ANSWER

by support In reply to Can't do a "Save As" to a ...

If you use CA Anti Virus, it is this that is casuing the problem. It's only started since beggining of July. The only way to get round it until CA fix the bug, is to make the user profile a member of domain administrators - NOT exactely ideal!

we're on the right path, but it's not exactly working

by jamesisin In reply to Just got the fix from CA

If I disable realtime scanning on the local machine this does allow saves from Office. Clearly it relates to eTrust, but this is a bad solution.

I am not able to use the Apply button after unchecking the Protect Network Drives checkbox.

Also, my machine which is perfectly able to save Office files to network drives does have that box checked.

So, there is clearly more to this than the above solution suggests.

Few things to check

by ben.rattigan In reply to we're on the right path, ...

To use the Apply button after unchecking the Protect Network Drives I found that sometimes I get an error and have to go back and re-apply it a couple of times before it successfully saves, I noticed this with most machines we have.

This error only occurs with Office 2007, the Office 2003 and other apps save fine. The erro only occurs when saving back to a server and not a p2p share.

I have a network of 70 clients and doing this has resolved the problem, granted its not ideal because there is a fault in someones code somewhere but it's not an option that needs switching on if the realtime scanner is running on your servers as well.

Upgrading eTrust finalized the solution

by jamesisin In reply to we're on the right path, ...

After we installed the latest version of eTrust we were able to uncheck the Protect Network Drives checkbox through the server's console.
