    Default error writing/closing file

    Re: Error writing/closing file
    Hi. I have a similar problem using autocad 2007 program. whenever i try making a new drawing in the server and try saving it, a dialog box comes out "error writing/closing file" appears and does not save the file. It can, however, save in a local location. Is there any other way to troubleshoot this problem aside from saving it locally? so that the files would be centrally located in the server...

    risaak,

    It sounds a bit like your server is struggling for space. Try deleting some .bak files that are more than a few days old and see if you can save then.

    Cheers

    I'm willing to bet the file you are working with references another drawing via an xref right?
