Virtual Vitriol Vexed by Villainy

Solidworkers,

 

Working in SW2010 SP2.1, I have an assembly which is about 47MB. I am trying to insert an existing external sub-assembly into the model, and everytime I do, I get this message:

 

"Copying virtual component to another assembly breaks the link to the original file."

 

After I click on OK, the subassembly, an external file, becomes an internal virtual component. By default, it shouldn't do that. Has anyone else experienced this or do you know how to fix it? My VAR is looking into it now, but I thought I would ask the SW Community at large.

 

Thanks!
