The permissions are ok, its only started happening. I saw it a few years ago but forget.
Is is a quota? Does anyone know how to check that?
The error is saying:"Word cannot save or create this file. Make sure that the disk you want to save the file is not full, write-protected, or damaged."

You might want to check that quota on the harddisk, not on the share!
