“You don’t have permission to modify files in this network location” error on Windows 7 x64


I noticed a reproducible error on both my work and personal Windows 7 x64 machines.

If you create a new document or file and try to save it to a library location, you are prompted with the error below:

You don't have permission to modify files in this network location

You don't have permission to modify files in this network location

 

The problem appears to be caused by Eset NOD32 AntiVirus software. The fix is simple.

Open the NOD32  console, click on “Setup”, then click on the “Enter entire advanced setup tree…”
nod32_console

Then select the ‘Real-time file system protection’ node and uncheck Scan on ‘File Creation’

nod32_advanced_setup

This is just a workaround and not a permanent solution; use at your own risk.

    You can also put that file in to the excluded files list. And also are you sure you have the latest build?
    v4.0.467

    Excluding a file every time I needed to save something in my user profile directory is not as convenient as the fix posted above. I was using the latest build at the time of the post.

    I am having the same issue. I’m trying to restore a backup to my Blackup 8520 and desperately need it done. Windows 7 is giving me this stupid error. I’m NOT using NOD32 though. I’m using AVG free version. Could that be the reason for this?
