    Francisodur - I moved your post to it's new thread - please don't tack your new question onto an old thread.

    I recommend Copy-paste everything from your drawing into a new one and try to save and close - it usually works.

    This could also be a Read/Write access issue if trying to save the file onto a network folder.

    if you are trying to save to a network, you could save a copy on your
    computers harddrive first, and then copy that file over to the folder it
    needs to be in on the network.

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    A dwg that won't close properly can often be saved by wblocking the entire drawing, and picking any point except '0,0' for the inswertion point. Wblocking purges the drawing completely, even things that the Purge command cannot.
