What is the main cause of Failed to Save error in SolidWorks.Sometimes due to this a lot of work is lost and rework time increases a lot.
Check out this link.
It speaks to having another file open as to the cause of it ans also suggests
disabling the autosave feature, but read through the thread to see if it applies to you.
Thanks for your answer Scott, yeah i have disabled the autosave option.it works in such condition if the failed to save error is coming frequently say after 10 mnts interval.
But in some other situation when this error comes then i am not able to do anything like save as option do not work.somehow i cannot save the document on local system or network too.
The files on which we are facing the issue are accessed from EPDM Vault.
I know in other cases and I have experienced this my self that if you go to Tools>Options>Sytem options
under the advanced portion deleting all of the messages takes care of the save as issue. This is something
I learned from my VAR.
I hit this occasionally. Changing a configuration seems to help, it somehow kicks solidworks back out of it's stupor and lets files save properly. If there is no spare configuration sometimes you have to create a new one.
Thanks for answer Dougal, I will try the option in assemblies but same error i faces sometimes in drawings then what can be done there.
I found this macro through one of the other postings on this topic. It worked for me in SW2007. Give it a try.
