Some users are facing problems trying to save files to a network folder. The user has full permissions but when he trirs to save a filehe gets the message the file already exists eventhough there is no file with that name. When he ofpts to overwrite the file is saved as a 0 KB file with no data.

Similarly some users trying to save an excel sheet  tries to open the file after saving it to the network folder , but finds it empty. Sometimes he gets the message that this file is locked by another user for editing ( but does not show the user name)

AntiVirus programs can cause this, running on clients, and scanning the network.
