    1, Does p:\.... exist?
    1a, Can you explore to that location?
    1b, Is there enough disk space for saving?
    1c, Do you have write access to that folder or sub folder?
    2, Is there an original file in that location, with that name, which is read
    2a, Can you save the file to another name?
    3, Are you using Pdmworks or another document system, where you do not have
    write access?

    Just a few suggestions to help you on your way

    This is not uncommon. I have usually seen it with drawings. It may
    mean a corrupt file. Hope you have backups set to 2.

  6. Thanks!
    A local SW thec support says this issue appeared in SP0 of SolidWorks
    2007 but was listed as 'fixed' after SP1. Currently SP4.0 is the
    latest release. Do you think this is the problem? I'm working on to
    updated it to SP4.
    Thanks, again!

    I've seen that kind of thing a lot farther back that SP1 or 2007. My
    advice is twofold:

    1. Set your backups to 2. Setting to 1 will only get you two corrupt
    files usually.

    2. Clean your temp out and defrag regularly.
