Hi - Every year I work on some Year Book files that I did not create and they open as read only files so I have to resave a million versions. The file is not locked, I have read & write privilegdes. It doesn't happen every time but 80% of the time which is odd. I am on a mac and the files were created with this MacBook Pro. We do link to a PC netwrok though/servers. ANY HELP??? it's quite annoying having to save so many versions.

How are you receiving the old files so that you can operate them on your Mac?

And BTW, saving versions every couple of hours is a very good thing to do, your problem notswithstanding.

Hi Mike, Thanks for your reply, yes I know saving regularly is great but this is every 20 minutes or so when I get interupted or go to a meeting etc etc! I like to save after every section of the book I do....

 

The files are obtained from the server at our college. So the same place they were saved from the previous designer. Any thoughts?
