I get an error while trying to save an big assembly. In fact, it won't
save. I get a message saying : "An unknown error occurred while
accessing path\filename.sldasm". I tried several thing like save as to
overwrite, save as another name, save as somewhere else, reimport from
vault, save as on the network. Nothing had an effect.
Is it completelly ununsable?
Anyone had that problem?
This is a common problem and has existed through the years. It
typically is indicative of some kind of network issue. You most likely
won't be able to recover your work.
1. Make sure backups are set to at least 2. Otherwise when this happens
you will have no recourse.
2. Clean out your temp directories. The following gets the files in the
normally hidden temp folder that SW writes to can be deleted from a dos
DEL C:\Documents and Settings\$USER\Local Settings\Temp\*
3. Check the log files on your server and the workstation for errors.
4. Run SW Rx and try to recreate the problem. This will give SW a
chance to see it.
You can try:
If your top level assembly has sub-assemblies, right click and open each and
save each individual assembly. Might not save all work, but might not lose
Select one or two assembly components from the tree. Right click and "form
new sub-assembly here" ( may have to expand your selection to see the
choice ). If you are able to form the sub-assembly, repeat, adding
additional selections. You may find that you only have a problem with one
component or sub-assembly. If thats the case, hopefully you will be able to
salvage nearly all your work.
