On a ew occasions now I have come across a problem saving from 98 or ME to and XP machine where the 98/me machine opens a file, alters it and then when trying to save either over the open file or rename and save on the XP machine the users receives a message saying that Wndows is unable to save the file, the disk may be write protected etc.

Other XP or 2000 PCs do not have this problem and then PC in question has only just developed the problem - I am not aware of any changes to the system but that is not to say the user hasn't altered something.

I have tried lots of different permission combinations etc but still haven't found the solution.

The user can save the file locally and then use explorer to copy to the original location.

In the past we have replaced the operating system with XP and problem is solved but this customer doesn't want to at the moment and needs the system running asap - hence the difficulty rating below

Any ideas please.
