Save problems

This is a bit confusing but I am having trouble with my automatic saves.  Each time my computer tries, I get a box that says "Unable to save dwg..."  then it creates a .tmp file.  With some of my files, after that box comes up, my file is gone until I hit save again.  It is happening to two of us at my company- out of 10 people.  Any ideas? 

I am cautiously opptimistic!  IT came to the conclusion our virus software- ca- is the problem.  They uninstalled and re-installed something else for me.  So far, so good!

I had it today when i used my ZoomExtQsaveNextPage button, locked by... , i dont remember exactly but im going to print screen it the next time.

In the curred directory was a dwl file with my name in it, as its supposed to be. But when i was working on an other project i saw that the dwl file was still there and i could not delete them (dwl + dwl2). I had to close AcadE before i could !

 

This week i also lost a few drawings this way, the file i was in could not save, lots of .sav files and then 3 of my drawing where gone no .dwg no .bak :smileysurprised:

 

So got the bakup a made the changes again, i heard this happned before, so if i have this can not save - locked by...,

alerts go of and i check the directory if everyting is still there, do a saveas, and restart AcadE.

Yes!  I have lost a few files also.  I have several files that try to auto save and then if you look in the directory where they are supposed to be, the file isn't there and no back up either.  This is very frustrating :womanmad:

hopefully someone can get to the bottom of this...

I'm not sure if this is related but everytime I close down AutoCAD, I get a dialog box with an exclamation point in it.  I just hit "OK" and it goes away?  My co worker used to get it but hasn't since the service pack...

I have been working in one of my files all day.(on and off)  I have put several source arrows in, with no problems.  I have two wires left and now when I try to put a source arrow on these wires, I get this popup which I have attached.  I don't know if it is related but it seems like it might be...

After a few missing drawings we changed from AcadE 2010 to AcadE 2012 and...

 

drawings where still disappearing..

 

but this was on 1 project.

 

Now working on another project and it did not happen once ! :smileyvery-happy:

 

So.. autodesk shall i send you the drawings, then you can check what made it happen ?

We use AcadE 2012.  I have most of my issues, not just saving when using the Electrical features of this program.  I do get the .tmp messages for most of my automatic saves

I am very happy to say my save problems seem to be fixed!!  After IT and I sat down on a conference call, we figured out the problem is with the permissions of the files I was using.  For some reason, I didn't have full control of my files.  I hope this helps! :smileyvery-happy:
