I have users access my network file server through a VPN connection.  They are complaining that occasionally if they open a file and make changes, especially if it "sits" a while.  When they try to save it it say the file is in use and can not be saved.   So they have to save a renamed copy.   The VPN connection does not drop.  What else could cause this condition.

VPN is not fast at the best of times for most businesses. If the file is large, it will drag.

I prefer to work with files locally and then synchronize back with Sync Back Pro (my choice), All Way Sync, Drop Box or Microsoft Offline Files (my least favourite choice).
