I have a number of Excel files in a vault on Box using the standard setup. When I save a file Excel gets a spinning beachball and after a long time says it can’t save the file. I have to save the file elsewhere, close Excel, delete the Excel temp files from the vault and then copy the file back into the vault.
This occurs regardless of whether Box is able to sync or whether sync is paused.
Thanks @tobihagemann , the key difference here is that the drive did not unmount as it appears to do in the other reported bug.
Exce creates all sorts of excess payload - folders, temp files, and these all get cleaned up if the save completes successfully and the file is closed. They still hang around in this scenario and need to be cleaned up manually.
Hey there! I’ve got the same problem! After opening the Excel-File I am able to save the file into the vault for maybe 1 minute. After that time frame I can’t save the file. I’m getting the error message “Nicht vollständig gespeichert. Datei konnte nicht umbenannt werden. Erneut versuchen?”
i have the same problem. its on windows and mac. i have the feeling when i let excel idle for some time it doesnt save anymore. maybe it has to do with auto-saves, which fail and then something gets wrong? cause it creates a heap of strange files instead.
