Problem saving files

Hi, 

A problem I encounter with two programs - one - PowerPoint and the other Max. I work on the files and then when I want to save or save as save as, he writes that there is a problem writing the file to a folder and can not be saved.

The folder is on the non-operating hard disk. When I save the desktop instead - it is saved without any problem.

It seems that in the folders I am trying to save, it creates either a temporary file (ppt) or a backup file (max) in the folder itself. This is not something that happens when you maintain your desktop.

What could be the problem, and how to solve it? It drives me crazy!!

Thanks

After all, when you perform save as, you control the path in which the file will be saved. Which is not clear how it forces you to keep in a temporary folder against your will.

It will be clearer if you attach a screenshot immediately after clicking save as but without performing the save itself

Check the drive you are trying to maintain.

What is the best way to test the drive, and what should I look for or notice in the test?

 

Open "My Computer".

Right click on the problematic drive.

Select "Properties".

Choose "Tools"

There you will click on drive test.

It does not force me to save in a temporary folder without my will, it makes a mistake when I want to save in the folder where I want to save (the original folder where the file is located) and then I have to choose another place to save it.

I enclose two screenshots of the save from the two programs (PowerPoint and Max) - the numbers next to show in the order of the additional windows that come up after I click OK.

I also added what the folder looks like - which might interfere with keeping it.

 

In the initial test I did - as written above - there is no problem with the drive.

It could still be a problem with the drive, or something in the folder went wrong.

In the link I gave, there are references to testing software from the manufacturers themselves

(Drive Makers).

This is the best way to test the drive.

Choose the software that will download a "long test".

If all goes well, you will have to select save files in another folder

In both programs.

You can also run the chkdsk command before testing with a manufacturer's software

From cmd opened with administrator privileges.

Type cmd in the search and right click on it and run as administrator.

Name type chkdsk x: / r / f when x is the suspect drive letter,

I.e. d, e, etc..

And for example if you keep the desktop (which does work), and then manually copy to the desired directory - will it work?

Yes. That's what I'm doing right now. Saves each file on the top disk, and at the end of the job copies them to the relevant folder - moves and saves without a problem. Opens from there with no problem. I really do not like to keep the desk top - I do not know if it is true or not but my feeling is always that it will hurt the speed of work. It's also not suitable for OCD like me who needs everything to be in order :)

 

I did the test through the CMD and everything seems to be fine. Wrote at the end :

Windows has scanned the file system and found no problems.
No further action is required.

 

Going to do a test now through the manufacturer.

The drive I keep is a partition of the main drive. it matters?

There is a slightly crooked solution.

That is, perhaps a solution.

Move all the material in the folder to another place.

Delete the existing (problematic) folder.

Open a new folder, if possible with a different name,

And preferably only in English.

Look what's going on.

If it works well, return the rest of the material .....
