I'm opening documents on a partially read-only file system.  When LibreOffice tries to make a backup copy in the same directory that the source file is in it is unable to do so, and then does not save the main file at all.

I have confirmed with both calc and writer.

Hi Ethan, I'm not sure about your problem since you didn't give detailed information. Just guessing that you had problem with samba.

Please reopen you report and mark UNCONFIRMED if you think different, & provide more information about your situation.
