Hello,

 

After a melt-down of our server, we had to temporarily move all of our files to a separate server untill we get a new one installed. As we've been moving files around, and relinked any modified links, we end up getting 'File Not Saved' messages and plenty of Revit crashes.

 

Here are the steps we've made:

1. Since we moved our Central File, it is now considered a Locoal Copy, so we have to detach it;

2. We do a Save As, and everything seems to save well; it goes up to 100%;

3. We get the 'File Not Saved' message, yet the file is located on our server, and seems to have the correct file size;

4. Since this is now a Central File, we make a copy of it and rename it. However, this Local Copy finds no connection to the Central File we just created.

 

The odd thing is, this whole process does work when we save the Central File to our Hard Drive or Desktop & so we thought the server is the issue, but oddly enough, this doesn't happen to every shared project we have on this server.

 

Could it be that moving files and updating links has somehow screwed up some of our files?

We're really getting frustrated with this, so any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!

You are working in 2010?

 

To create a local, you do not copy, you open the central.  Then you save as locally.

I suppose you mean checking the 'Create Local' checkbox, rather than actually opening the Central??

I know it's another way to create a Local Copy (which we also tried), but it doesn't address/fix our issue. The message appears as we are saving a detached Central File, before we're even in the process of creating Local Copies.

 

I'm just wondering if anybody has had server-side issues where a file appears to save (despite the error message) but doesn't maintain it's sharing characteristics.

It is not "....another way to create a local..."! 

To create a local, you do not copy, you open the central (WITHOUT DETACHING).  Then you save as locally.  That is the only way to create a local.

 

You can not create centrals using copy.  You must either

  1. open a file detached then when you save, it will be a central  or
  2. open a file and save as with the make this file a central checked.

I think we're getting side-tracked here; my question is not on how to create a local copy, but rather why my Central file gives an error upon saving. It is perfectly OK to copy the Central File, detach it so it becomes its own Central (which would be #3) and create Local Copies from it. (I'm not saying your techniques are wrong, since I use them as well)

My question is still this: has anybody ever experienced this when saving to a server? I believe the issue lies on the server-side since doing the exact same steps locally on my hard drive works just fine.

Now, as for creating Local Copies, activity within the Central File should be limited, which is why copying the Central File and opening it is the preferred way. Alternatively, you can use the 'Create New Local' checkbox.

Hey all.  I spoke with someone from Autodesk at the last AU convention and according to them, copying the central file, renaming it, and then opening that renamed file is the preferred way to make a local copy.  Opening the central file is forbidden at our firm.  So far we've had no trouble with local copies that way.

We've had problems like this, and it was remedied by Auditing the Central File while opening it (simply check the "audit file" box when opening the central file.  After auditing, create new local files from the audited central file.
