All right, this is a new one for me. I went to save my work and was immediately confronted with this message:
I should say this was the second time I received that message. On the first occasion, based on what the window says, I decided to close all of the unnecessary programs to see if that would help. (As you can tell, no blue dots [=open programs] other than Finder and Word). However, after I did that I still received this message upon trying to save. I clicked “OK” and got this:
I then clicked “OK” here (mainly because it was my only option), and was confronted with this:
Here I clicked “Yes” (obviously because I want to save this–some how). However, even after clicking “Yes” the lovely red dot in the top left corner (greyed out in this picture because of the intrusion of the warning) still indicates that the work is not saved. I attempted to by-pass things by saving the file to my USB key (i.e. “Big Drive”), but I was slapped with the exact same set of messages.
This issue comes a very bad time (as they always do), seeing that this paper/chapter needs to be submitted by the 4th. I don’t want to lose anything, including my mind, so I am begging for any and all help I can get.
