Error when saving files via WebDav

Recommended Posts

I have come across a rather unusual and specific error. When I mount the DocuBin share via "Connect to Server" I can open files in the local applications without a problem. I can make changes to RTF, PDF, and PNG files and save them back to DocuBin without incident. DOCX, XLSX, and PPTX files however have a problem. It seems to be that the MS applications don't like saving over the WebDav. The first error that I get is referencing a path error. Then it comes up with the save dialog which seems to have forgotten the filename that I tried to save it as as it comes up with ".docx.." every time. I've included screenshots of both windows.

There is a bug where Microsoft Word 2011 cannot save to mounted WebDAV volumes that begin with "file". Connecting to http://{host}/DocuBin/webdav solves the issue.
