Thats great...i'm told this would happen on any install so why am i not listening, yet no one is listening to what i said which is it di NOT happen on the3 last 2 installs of seven nor on any XP install ever, and with the same file on the same storage drive thats never had a OS on it.

So i'm somehow the ahole for asking and not hearing a solution other than "permissions" even tho i did not need to do that last time, time b4 that, etc. What don't you get about that?

... I have a 500GB USB hard drive that was once formatted to FAT32 under XP and then upgraded to NTFS all under Window's XP. The drive has since been through several more XP installs and one failed Window's 7 install, I've never had a saving problem with it. However, a quick check in the properties of one of the file (security tab) to see if all the standard user(s) are in place (System, everyone / authenticated users, administrators, etc) should let you know if the permission settings are healthy or not.

Anyway, which program are you using to edit and save your text documents with? My computer is set to open all text files types in Office 2007. And I did have a saving problem once a blue moon ago (XP), but not on my USB hard drive-- on the OS drive itself and it was like the one you mentioned. I got it fixed though (shame that I can't find the exact technet article link for it anymore :/)

Anyway, what I did was remove the system attribute (-s) from the problem files & folder with a simple command line: attrib M:\*.* -s -r /S /D and then rebooted as the guide suggested to.

M:\ is just an example location, when I had the problem my location was set to the desktop folder. I don't know if it will solve your problem, but it's worth a mention I suppose.
