First, I need to tell you that I have posted here before as EricSIG. Since our division is being sold the SIG is no longer appropriate. (SoWo 2004 SP2.1) Just reporting some cause and effect behaviour to see if anyone else has seen this. I know that there is a Windows link to take care of "Real" Delayed Write Failed problems. This is SolidWorks related (I think). We have had users get the "Delayed..." message when saving a drawing of a weldment or assembly, especially if the sub-parts are affected. After getting the message if you look on the server to see open files for the specific user and part there are2 for the sub-part! One will be Read and the other will be Write+Read. Unless you get rid of both instances on the server the drawing will not save. I am guessing the behaviour may have something to do with the drawing referencing the sub-part (Read) and then needing to pass an update back (Write+Read). With both locks active nothing can happen.
