Question about HP Pavilion dv8000t Notebook
I write a document, or edit it, in Word 2007. I can save it successfully for about 4-6 times, and then, on the 7th "save", I get the message, "Word cannot complete the save due to a file permission error." I save all of the files that I want to keep on a flash drive. From looking at another forum on this problem, I see that it may be the flash drive. I find this hard to believe because it has happened to 2 flash drives. Also, as many users have noted, the problem is inconsistent: sometimes the error comes up after 2 saves, sometimes after 6. Any help you can provide is appreciated. Thank you!
This error occurs when you are in a domain, and the files came from other users.
What you can do is right click a folder or a file > properties
look for the security tab then, add everyone on the list. And make sure that you check full on the permissions.
you can get back to me if this doesn't work.

Tips for a great answer:
Losing work is great for terrible moods.
There is nothing like spending an hour hammering away at your keyboard making edits to an important document, only to find that you're unable to save it when you're done.
If you're experiencing this issue and Microsoft Word is throwing errors instead of saving your hard work, there is still hope for you.
There's a good chance the file you're working on is read-only.
Saving a new copy will often fix this issue.
If you can't do that, copying the body of a document to another application should do the trick.
Select the "File" tab on the Microsoft Word toolbar. Click "Save As."
Browse to the location you wish to store the file in. Select a format from the "Save as type" drop-down list.
Microsoft Word 2010 will default to the .docx format.
Use "Word 97-2003 Document" to save the file as a .doc file.
Type a name for the file and click "Save."
A new copy of the document will be saved to the location you specified.
Your edits will be included in this new document.
This procedure will get you around read-only permissions.
Use Another Program
Select your Microsoft Work window and press "Ctrl" and "A" simultaneously.
This will highlight the entire document.
Press "Ctrl" and "C" simultaneously to copy the whole document to the Windows clipboard.
Launch an alternate text-editing application.
WordPad and Notepad are included with Windows so they make a logical choice.
Applications like Microsoft Works Word Processor or AbiWord should work as well.
Press "Ctrl and "V" simultaneously to paste your document into the second application.
Click "File" and select "Save As." Select a location, a format and a name for the file and click "Save."
Hope this helps
