Windows - Delayed Write Failed when saving Excel file
Posted on 2007-10-01
When trying to save an Excel file to a mapped shared folder on 2003 SBS, the progress bar gets to about 98% then stops and after 20-30 seconds an exclamation icon appears in the system tray with a balloon message "Windows Delayed Write Failed Windows was unable to save all the data for the file \\xxxserv1\public2\xxxx\xxxx\F5B67000. The Data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please"
Plenty of disk space is available, no disk quotas, other files can be saved, this file can be saved locally without problems and the file name it quotes is obviously a temporary file during the disk write.
any ideas ?
