    Saving to Networked Drive Causes Errors

    Locked

    by jdroba ·

    Some of my users are experiencing some problems when trying to save files to a department networked/shared drive. Some of the error messages displayed are:

    1. Windows was unable to save all the data for the file. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save the file elsewhere.

    2. The save failed due to out of memory or disk space.

    3. The path is too deep

    This appears to be happening to multiple users across our network. Client machines are W2K. Our network is currently an NT4.0 domain although the file server is a W2K machine. AD is not in-place as of yet.

    Any thoughts? This is causing some pretty big problems!

      for #’s:

      1. They do not have proper permissions to “write” to that folder, check permissions.

      2. C drive is out of space on local machine and / or server space is out of space. More than likely, their C drive is full.

      3. Map the drive, not a shortcut. Shortcuts to a folder inside multiple sub-folders will give you this message. If it is mapped, it will not.

      Good luck

      Guess I need more info:

      Are there disk space quotas in place?
      Were they ever allowed access to the network drives, and if so, when did the problems start?
      Network hubs/switches all working okay?

      Had the same problem with NT server a few years ago which turned out to be a virus. Sorry, can’t remember which one it was.

      Hopes this helps

      #1 check to see if a file was opened by multiple users. This can cause a few error messages. Also look at network errors, dns errors.

      #2 allocated disk space is low, or network errors.

      #3 The path to the save file has a lot of folders. This is usually a problem with cdr’s make sure that they are mapped to the correct drives.

      From all 3 I would suspect that they cannot save due to network problems, incorrect drive mappings (like mapped to a cdr drive), or a virus
