Old problem still not not fix/cannot save pbix

Hello, 

 

very often when I try to save the pbix.file, PowerBi comes with a warning that its already opened somewhere. Of course its not opened twice. And what other program would try to get acces to it? Also when I try to rename to save elsewhere its not always working. Only after I try it several times maybe. How can I fix that problem once and for all?

Thank you in advance. 

Best.

Hi @Greg

thanks for the effort! It was not possible for me to look up with the task manager, so I will definitely try to find the "other" program, which also access the file at the same time. I have a little idea that onedrive could be so problem, since it always wants to sync with the cloud. Would be a bad thing, since there are folks there update their file over onedrive/sharepoint. 

Best.

That happens all the time. Even change directory or name won't help. Any solution here?

Best.
