I've checked Technet for this error and the fixes are already applied but we still get this message:
"Word failed reading from this file (AutoRecovery save of file_name.asd).
Please restore the network connection or replace the floppy disk and retry."
Almost everyday at least one user experiences this problem of trying to access a word or excel file off of our main server and it runs rampant. It's not a permissions problem I'm positive. They are running win98 and winNT workstation. Rebooting the server won't work.
