I have had 3-4 times this morning an error message when saving a ppt document. It then reverts to read only and I have to save as a new version.  This has happened to me before with other files. It is not critical as I just save it under a new name, but is a bit annoying, and probably bad for storage limits as it means I often end up with 5-6 versions of same file.

What is the error message?  Also, is it being saved to a network or shared drive?

Ok.  Give this a shot and let us know how it goes.  I've seen several incidents with files on a shared or network location that have had issues, that have been fixed by turning off the details pane in explorer (for some reason...)

1) Open Windows Explorer
2) Select Organize | Layout and un-check the Details pane option
