I have a problem with a user MS Excel 2003 documents, they periodically receive the message "The save failed due to out of memory or disk space."  They click the message two to three times and the file will save. The environment is Windows 2003 domain with one DC and one file/print server. I have checked permissions, disabled Symantec to see if it was interfering, applied patches to both the server and desktops....  Any suggestions to continue troubleshooting this is much appreciated.an i am not using any VERITAS software.

Only in Excel? What about Word? Notepad? Wordpad? Any other applications?

Where is the file being saved? Locally? Shared network drive? On the Server? On another workstation?
