Our end users are sometimes receiving error messages when trying to save MS Office 2010 files to network shared folders.

For example:


Effective permissions on shared folder:

Environment is:

Desktop - Windows 7

Server - Windows SBS 2008

Any ideas on what may be causing these issues?

What AV are you running? –  Chris S Dec 20 '11 at 1:05
AVG Internet Security Business Edition 2011 on the server. I just tried disabling the "Resident Shield" which scans files but the same error appeared. –  Ash Dec 20 '11 at 1:22
so you are saying that it sometimes works? –  tony roth Dec 20 '11 at 15:10
also is the share permission set to everyone full control? –  tony roth Dec 20 '11 at 15:10
Yep sometimes users can save Office files ok, sometimes not. For example the user yesterday could create & save a new Word doc ok within a folder, but couldn't edit then save over an existing Word doc in the same folder. The folder has Share permissions: Full Control for Domain Users, and the end user has Security Permissions: Modify. –  Ash Dec 20 '11 at 21:19
