Yup. I'm well aware of file/directory ownership. Unfortunately, taking ownership of the file/directory does not resolve the issue. I already tried this.

I may have a corrupted profile. I can't think of anything else, at this point.

I guess the main point of this post is -- are you able to do this without issues? Or is it just my setup?

This will at least narrow it down to a profile issue.

Yes, my DW is up to date.

Please note that even if I choose to edit in notepad, I receive the same error of the OP. "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process." This further indicates that the preview pane (via Windows explorer) is not releasing the file as intended.

-- The only difference when I open in notepad is the file does not get lost in the MS Bermuda Triangle when error is present. (meaning: doesn't delete itself.) It seems to only disappear when I use DW. So that narrows that down.

hmm.

Try creating a new account of the same type you have now, then check if the problem exists in that too. That could narrow down the profile issue. Also, see this thread on how to fix a corrupted profile and copy your profile settings.

Thanks guys. I may just create a new profile. I didn't want to have to go through all the junk associated with it, but I may be forced to. If I decide to take this path, I'll follow-up with you to let you know how it went.

Again, I want to thank those of you that took the time to assist in helping me. It means a lot to me and is greatly appreciated. This is a great forum.

Follow-up to come...
