Updating Excel files leaves temp files with no extension behind

I have a user that when she tries to update excel files on the network drive, it saves a file with 5 or 6 random numbers and no file extension, and it doesn't update the original excel file. She has the correct permissions to the drive, anyone know what is causing this?

Option 1: Can you check in the Excel Menu Tools> Options > Save Tab. See if the checkbox for Autorecover is checked?

Also please check in the Transition Tab under Options to see what does it say in the "Save Excel File As" Drop Down.

Option 2: If this does not work then perhaps the Excel application does not have full-access into the shared folder. Can you please check that also?

If nothing works, can you post a screenshot of what are the files that are getting created ?

Thanks,
Ardhendu
