Error: Not owner of the directory

Error Message

In ArcEdit, SAVE causes the following error message:

1- Not owner of the directory
2- Another person or application is accessing this directory

Cause

Permissions changed on the workspace folder and coverage edits could not be saved.

Solution or Workaround

Use the COPYWORKSPACE command to copy the workspace to a new name and location. ArcInfo will then recognize the current users ownership of the new workspace, and edits to coverages will then be saved.
