A few weeks or months ago I started getting this annoying error message when trying to open a file from another computer on the same workgroup.
Both machines are running 7 Pro 32; the "server" has a legit share with all the right permissions. It only hapens with .TXT files, as far a I have been able to work out.
I have read a solution posted elsewhere (Open File Security Warning - Enable or Disable
) but that refers to bypassing security - in my case I shouldn't have to do that, the file is incorrectly being identified as being "outside your local network" (note that my error doesn't have the exact same wording as any of those referenced in that post).
I've verified that the error occurs whether I set Notepad or a 3rd party application (in my case, Notepad++) to be the default text editor so it's definitely coming from Windows, not the app. I've also reset the file permissions and removed all personal metadata by using the Windows Explorer option to create a copy of the file with all personal data removed.
The file was originally created on the computer from which I'm opening it, *NOT* downloaded from anywhwere. It's not the only file I have this issue with, other text files do the same (including a new blank one I just created as a test and another that opens fine from my local desktop but trips the error when copied to the network share). Where does this stoopid (and wrong) error message come from?
