We are running an SBS 2011;  client workstation is runing Windows7 64-bit & Office 2003.
User has file XYZ.XLS open.  Makes changes and attempts to save it to the same location with a new name.
He receives the following error:

Microsoft Office Excel
The folder \\ServerName\RedirectedFolders\UserName\My Documents\FileName isn't accessible.  The folder may be located in an unavailable location, protected with a password, or the filename contains a / or \.  

I have verified that none of the items in the error are valid.  

There are no folder quotas in place.  User is able to copy and paste the file in that folder and renames it in that manner at this time.  

Any thoughts would be appreciated.   Thank you!
