My office has a Sony laptop that I use for meeting presentations. All I do with it is copy documents I need for my meetings from the office server onto the laptop. For some reason, for the past several weeks, documents that I copy from the server are locked. Not "Read-Only", but Locked. If I try to type or otherwise edit a document that I've copied from the server, it says "This modification is not allowed because the document is locked" at the bottom left corner of Word. I cannot modify or alter them in any way, nor can I "Save As" a new file. No desktop in our office has any such issues. I even copied documents from the server onto a memory stick, stuck the memory stick in the laptop, and even doing it that way the documents are Locked on the laptop. Our tech guy is working on it right now, but even he's a little stumped, so I thought I'd see if GT can outsmart him. I have faith in you guys!!! FYI, I'm very computer-savvy and have NOT made any changes whatsoever to any settings on the computer whatsoever. I only touch it to copy documents back and forth and make presentations, that's it. No internet surfing on it, NOTHING. Does anyone here have any ideas?? Thanks!
