revit 2013 not responding when saving

Ok, so i've googled the problem but without any success:

 

When working with certain files, not all but always the same ones, Revit stops responding when I try to save the file.

If i save it to a local harddrive it always works fine, but that cant be how it's supposed to be, not being able to save files on a server?! I've tried linking the file to a new one and then binding it, but still with the same issues. It's not a matter of large files vs small files working or not working. And it does the same thing with the same files no matter what computer i use at the office.

 

I've run out of ideas, need help!

Already tried unfortunately.... And it's also the same on all computers, and always with the same files. But enough files for it to not just be a one time bad luck.

Kicking this back up to the top since it's still a major issue at the office.

Does anyone else have the same problem? And even better; does anyone have a solution?

I wouldn't recommend trying to open a file directly from a USB.  You can run out of storage space pretty quickly (especially if you're using a non-workshared model that saves more than one backup), because you're essentially saving multiple copies of the file every time.

 

Also, the write speed to a USB is slower than to a hard drive, which might be part of why you're getting a not-responding.  If I were you, I'd save the file to my local machine before working on it.
