Drawings, what did I do to make it take so long to save?

Howdy folks,

 

Happy Fathers day to all you dads out there.

 

Using SW since 2005.  Currently using 2010 SP0. Windows 7x64 with tons of speed and memory.  System very stable. Using network server all file locations and tools, etc.

 

So normally I can make a mulitple sheet drawing and save all day without delay.  I like to save very often because I've been burned big time several times due to SW or Windows problems.  Like every 5 minutes.

 

Once in awhile, like this project I'm working on now, has multiple assemblies referenced in the drawing file.  Client needs a single file, with muliple sheets.  I'm up to 15 sheets now.  Ever since I loaded in the assembly, every time I save it takes (no kidding, I've timed it) 3~4 minutes.  Simple math says that if I save (or try to) every 5 minutes, it takes an hour to do a half hour of work.

 

By the way.  I've downloaded to local drive; no difference.  I've downloaded to my DELL laptop; no difference.  I'm pretty sure it's something in SW.

 

What did I do?

thanks
