Solved: Saving a Word document one on a floppy and two on the C drive??

Question: Solved: Saving a Word document one on a floppy and two on the C drive??


Is it possible that when you save in Word (2000) it makes a backup copy on the C:?? I save all my work on a Floppy disk then put in my computer with printer (then print it). However recently my disk drive has been playing up and have lost everything on the disk.

So when I save something on a floppy it also creates a backup on the computers hard drive. (Saves file on Floppy A:\letter.doc and creates a backup on hard drive c:\backups\letter.bac)

I know you can create backups on word except it saves them in the same directory (in this case a:\ which is pointless since I lose all data on the disk)

Anyone tell me if i can do this?

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.

Answer:Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.

When I save as...the line underneath the new name of the file usually comes up as web page first. I know i can change this to word doc but how do i get word doc to be first choice ?

Answer:Saving As Word Document

First choice will normally be whatever's appropriate to what you are trying to change. So if you're in Word, it should normally be as a Word document, if you're on the web, it will be as a web page.If you're in Word (you don't say) - go to Tools - Options - Save and change the default to whatever you want.

whenever i save a web document it is done as NOTEPAD. For editing purposes and being a compulsive, i then cut and past into WORD format.
Is there a way of my saving directly into WORD?

I have windows xp and word 2003


Answer:saving new document as WORD

In Internet Explorer (assuming that is your browser of choice) right click a balnk part of the IE toolbar at the top and select "customize"

Then add the "edit button" (assuming it's not already on the toolbar) and it should offer you the choice of "editing" the webpage in Word.

If on the other hand you are "Saving as" a .txt file, simply change your file associations to open txt files with Word will achieve a similar result.

As it stands, from reading your post its quite unclear exactly what you are doing.

A box comes on screen cant save this its read only,Can I have some help here please I would like to use this method and edit after.
Running windows 7 and burned the CD with CD burner xp.
Thanks,Would be glad of some help.

Answer:Saving a word document to a CD

Are you using a rewritable CD?
They are labeled CD-RW.
If it's not a CD-RW you can't update files already burned to the CD.

If it's a "write once" CD I believe you can add more files if you did not do a "finalized" burn.
They are labeled CD-R.

I was doing some editing the other night and had finished and saved the document (a large one), safely I thought. Then I shut down the whole computer, and an error message came up saying that WORD.EXE failed. I cancelled it and thought nothing of it, but on logging on again last night I found signs that the editing I'd done hadn't been saved. Is there any way I can get the edited version back? Was it because word.exe crashed?

Answer:Problem saving Word Document

Word is pretty stable though very long or complex documents do rather push it.I think you have lost the edited work this time.Have you tried Tools > Options > Save and setting the time between auto saves?There is the option of Master documents (which I have never needed to use and don't understand) but imagine this is a way of coping with smaller chunks of the whopper at a time.Word may have been cut off while it was saving or closing and simply lost it.I have had this happen in other apps where RAM was at a premium because I was doing a montage or playing with all sorts of imports into a different application.Whatever, when the smoke has cleared all the recent work has disappeared.As grumpyguts suggested Save frequently and if it is that important "Save_As something else now and then.

I keep a journal and try to update it daily. This morning I updated the journal and got an error message that was being overwritten and did I want to do that? No. Then I got another message that said my file was read only. Hmm. I look again and it says is read only. I click on cancel, and everything closes. Curious, I open my document again--and it can't be found. I looked in temp, Recent, everywhere I could think and the document is gone, though it's listed in Recent. When I do a search it lists the document as 548kb, but when I click on the link, it says it can't be found, and when I click on "open containing folder" there's a shortcut but no document.

I have a backup from a couple of days ago, but since I'd updated the journal I'd really like to find it again. Is there any way to do that?

Was curious if anyone else has heard of this problem. When working with a word document that I have opened and (saved) closed many times, I now open up the same document, still named the same and it is blank.
Weirder still, one of the word documents "somehow" changed the icon over to an excel icon and that is blank as well when opened in excel. Tried for the heck of it to rename but that of course made it completely unreadable.
The only rhyme or reason I can get from this is it seemed to all happen on the same day Mar. 17th.

So has anyone ever heard of word or excel deleting the contents of your document / spreadsheet when you save or do I start the standard virus and malware scanning?

The issue is when I go to save the PFD as a .doc format (word) it converts without issue. But, when I go to open the word format, the word document has nearly doubled in pages and the file size has grown vastly.

The original PDF is 60 pages, but when it is saved in .doc format the word doc increases to 120ish pages. The reason for this is easily noticable too, it leaves in a blank page nearly every other page for some reason. Any ideas why this is happening or what could be done to remedy this issue? Thanks!

There was no error message. The busy icon was on screen but nothing was happening. I couldn't access anything else. I had to restart using Ctrl-Alt-Del. This has happened a number of times.

I do not want "read only" status for whatI have saved from Excell and a Windows grade program on 2 different floppy disks. Worse yet the disks cannot be read but the read only message shows. How can I undo this? I never knowingly changed anything to get read only. I suspect that Norton Anto-Virus, having been run recently, may have something to do with this. I also suspect that the A drive may be wearing out.

Answer:read only after saving in excell or word on floppy

Better get those files onto some other media right now.

Floppy disks are NOT A GOOD WAY to store important files. They are as useless as...well, you know the expression. Frankly, they're only good for taking files from one PC to another. If you want to temporarily store a file, it would be safer to email it to yourself (or someone else) than it would be to put it on a floppy disk.

Never re-use floppy disks. They only cost about a quarter, and go bad too frequently. Many people who weren't around when floppies were used a lot don't know the rules about them. Like you can't put them near anything magnetic. Think you haven't? Ever see someone throw one in their purse? Right next to their credit cards? That's just an example.

Floppies have no integrity, so your files won't be safe. Consider other alternatives.

Also, try right-clicking those files in Windows explorer. Hit Properties. See if read-only is checked and if so, uncheck it. There's a tiny little window on the corner of every diskette. If you close that window, you won't be able to write (save files to) to the diskette anymore. Well, it either has to be open or closed. I forget.

Hope this helps and welcome to TSG!

What they tell me is happening is that when a document is saved (like a newsletter) all the formatting disappears and it's in the form of one big paragraph. It happens when saving new or when saving exsisting documents that are being worked on. It's happening on a nice old lady's pc, and I'd really like to help her get it fixed, but I'm a WordPerfect person. Any ideas what may be going on and how to correct it, other than reinstalling Word?

Hi all.

The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.

When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.

When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.

Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.

After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.

Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.

When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.

I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.

In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.

I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.

So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?


Answer:[SOLVED] Word document freezes computer and document is corrupted

Hi all.

Just to advise that I am going to mark this topic as a fashion so to speak.
I may resurrect it at a later stage if the problem re-presents it's self.

In a nut shell. I spent a lot of time today searching sites and performing tests including searches on my computer program.

I ascertained that all the aforementioned "defective " Word documents originated in the same folder. After performing several search functions with the criteria as ~$.doc no other such files were found on my computer, other that the already mentioned.

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

Thanks anyway.

I've been writing a novel for about a year and I have around 96 pages written. It is not much but much of that time has been spent doing research. I have been saving it to a floppy disk. Some time after I began it stopped saving to my hard drive so I just continued saving to the floppy. I keep three copies as insurance. Yesterday I had a notice on my screen telling me the floppy is full; no more can be added. I had done more than 12 hours of writing and if I turn my computer off I will lose that. You see, when I go in to the computer and then to My Documents and then click on the novel, it always asks me to insert a floppy. It is as though it is not on my hard drive.

I can't recall exactly the paths I followed, but one time when I wanted to send the info on a WinZip file to a floppy, I get the WinZip folder on my screen with all the items in it showing, then I highlighted everything with Select All, then the File menu opened a Send To button which included the choice of sending to a floppy, which I did.

Another time, when I thought I was following the same path, when I highlighted everything with Select All, the File menu did not contain a Send To button but contained a Move To button which then came me the choice of where to move to, and I selected my A (floppy) drive.

My best recollection is that on both occasions I got a WinZip window in which I selected the zip file involved and then I clicked on the WinZip Classic button. But perhaps I did something a little differently one time than I did the other and just don't remember.

Both ways worked, but I thought by way of better educating myself about WinZip I'd see if someone could explain the availability of these different approachs.

Win XP SP2 (I think)
Intel Quad-Core 2.4ghz [OCed to 3.2ghz)
RAM 4gb [2.5gb detected]
HDD- Western Digital 160GB and not sure which company could be Maxtor 500GB SATA
8800GT 512mb Video Card

I have an IDE drive on there too with an Apple OSX installed on it.


I've been hunting viruses and trojans [due to a backdoor trojan that] for the last few days and elimintated most of them including the backdoor. I was running a 'thourough' scan today while I was at school as well as downloading some things. MY anti-virus program is avast!

Thinking my comps quad-core 3.2ghz could handle the load I turned on Company of Heroes while all this was running....the comp froze...I restarted manually.

The first screen I got is the usual one except under SATA Channel listings it said Floppy disk(s) fail (40)....I don't have a floppy drive.

Then when I press F1 to continue it doesn't load up my main hardrive where Windows is installed. Like it doesn't detect only detects the IDE drive with Apple on it and can start it up.

Don't ask me how I have an Apple OS on my comp the answer might violate the forums rules...but that OS isn't the problem.

Somehow the anti-virus scan mixed with downloading and a video game crash messed things up. Even F8 doesn't work.

Answer:[SOLVED] Floppy Disk Fail(40)...but I have no floppy startup

The BIOS was reset to default values. Enter the BIOS at startup and change the boot order priority to the sata hdd first. Locate the screen with the setting for the floppy drive and set that drive to disabled or none. If there's a setting called halt on disk errors change it to "no errors but keyboard" or something like that. Once you're back within windows run chkdsk c: /R to correct errors in the file system caused by the hard restart (answer y when prompted to schedule the scan at next startup and restart the computer).

What's the brand, model and wattage of your power supply ? The freezing wasn't necessarily caused by the antivirus, could have been caused by an underpowered power supply. With an overclocked quad core and a 8800GT you need a quality 700W+ supply. Locate the hardware monitor screen in the BIOS and report your temps, fan speeds and voltages.


Don't ask me how I have an Apple OS on my comp the answer might violate the forums rules...but that OS isn't the problem.

Actually mentioning it already violates the forum rules. Please read them if you didn't already : Also read this. I'll pass this time cause it's your first post but I'll have to issue an official warning next time.

Hi, I'm trying to install Windows XP Pro SP2 on my Compaq CQ62-423NR laptop.

I use this laptop for work. It came with Windows 7 Home Premium. During the past few days, a computer on our company's network was infected with a virus. It spread to our company's network drive (NAS) and infected many of the files. When I used my computer to access the network drive, the virus infected my computer, and for some reason, AVG wasn't able to detect the virus until it was too late. I.T. has restored the network drive from a backup, and all ordered everyone to restore from a clean backup or reinstall Windows. I have made backups before, but they were stored on the computer's hard drive and I.T. says the backups may be infected, so I can not use them.

It's been a long time since the warranty expired. HP doesn't want to let me order recovery media. Then I made a dumb move and deleted the Windows 7 partition, hoping to be able to install Windows XP. But there was a problem with that.

If I simply boot from the installation CD, a BSoD (STOP) appears. After some research, I found out this is because my laptop's hard drive has AHCI and there is no option in the BIOS (InsydeH20 Rev 3.5) to disable it.

I read somewhere that I can either use a floppy drive to load the AHCI drivers before installation, or slipstream the ISO/install CD and add the AHCI drivers to the list of drivers that come built-in.

The previously saved file has then been deleted automatically from the USB pen by Word.She has tried various Microsoft Office suites [XP, 03, etc] and has just downloaded a trial of Office 2007 from Microsoft - but it did the same thing again this morning. I have recommended that she ONLY saves to her local drive at the moment but the USB drive is her preferred option to move these files between various PCs. We do not know whether the same problem will now occur after saving on the local drive.Any ideas what the problem could be as it is obviously not linked to a specific version of Office? TIAPaul

Answer:Word not saving to USB drive?

Save to a folder on the hard drive then copy the folder to the usb stick; that is by far the most reliable means.

Sometimes when I try to open a file from My Documents, Word 97 tries to access the floppy drive first, slowing down the file open process. It seems to be with files that were once on a floppy disk. Even though they are now in My Documents, in an appropriate folder, Word still tries the floppy first.
Any ideas why? Any solutions?

Answer:word document on flash drive garbles in email

There are a lot of steps in between. Does the file open on the flash drive? What about when copied to the computer? What version of Word was it created with? Using standard fonts? Any special coding? Does the receiver have the same version of Word installed? Is the problem with just one recipient?

Hello all!

I have a complicated probelm here:

When I attempt to save a doc to a directory within a mapped drive, Word will hang when I attempt to rename the doc, but only if I navigate to the folder, and then attempt to save. If I rename the file before I navigate to the folder, it goes with no problem. If I sit and wait, it will eventually come back with the new name that I typed, but only after about 2 minutes of waiting.

I have tried saving to different folders, and the problem persists. I have tried saving to the same folder from other programs and there is no problem.

I am using MSOfficeXP SBE(SP2) within WinXP(SP1). I have run both Office update and Windows Update and installed all SPs and recommended updates. The server is Win2000 with all SPs and updates installed. The workstation is about 1 month old and worked fine for the last month saving to that same mapped drive (the directory is new).
If anyone has any suggestions, I will untie this noose around my neck and try them.

Answer:{SOLVED} Word 97 - Document History

Richard, since no one else responded, I'm going to. I believe you may have a corrupt file or, even more likely, a corrupt registry key. The easiest step to take is to rename your file. When you launch Word, it will look for and, when it doesn't find one, it creates a new, uncorrupt one.

If that doesn't work, you may need to edit the registry. Let us know.

I am experiencing delays when I switch to a Word document. When I first switch to an open Word document from another Word document or another program, there is always a 4 second delay (hourglass) before the document becomes active. I have tried disabling and even deleting the couple of add-ins I have installed. This did not help. I tried adding memory, up to 2 GB now.

I may have several things open but I do not experience this sort of delay with any other programs including Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, etc.

Beyond the add-ins and memory, I have no idea how to attack this problem. Since I spend half the day working with these documents, comparing, editing and transferring data between them, it is frustrating.

So, my question is, how do I go about figuring out what the problem is?

I've tried using the find/replace function... I tried finding the ^p and replacing it with nothing. It got rid of all the breaks and the document became one big block of text... this is not what I was looking for as I still want the breaks between paragraphs.

I've tried find ^p^? (^? being any character), it worked to rid of all the unwanted breaks between sentences, and kept the breaks between paragraphs... but of course... the first character after every break is deleted too...

What else can I try???

Or am I doomed to do this manually by hand.... it's a 200+ page document....

I don't know why, but I went to open a word document and got this instead: "Word cannot open the document: user does not have access privileges...". I have gone through just about everything from the Microsoft knowledge base, to other forums. I have done just about all I can think of and still get the same problem. The only thing that I can remember doing recently with my word documents was to move them from My Documents to a new folder called "DOCs" inside of the "My Documents" folder. My other word documents on my F: drive do not give me the problem, so I'm pretty sure that it's not the program altogether. I'm guessing that somehow the files have gotten either orphaned or locked out for some reason. I can't locate my Office disc, if I need to re-install the program. I'm hoping that it is an easy fix that I am somehow overlooking. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

I recently completed a document in Microsoft Word 2003 and decided to make some changes.

I created a border around some text. I highlighted the contents of the box and then I moved the mouse up to the "fill color" tool on the menu.

BTW, there is a thread about this in the archives but the solution there didn't solve my problem (running winword.exe /regserver form Start/Run and deleting the doc key from the HK Root section of RegEdit) .

I finally solved the problem and maybe it will work for you. I uninstalled MoveOnBoot and Icon Packager, installed Registry Mechanic and let it fix everything, and then rebooted. Voila...problem solved.

I've had problems with Icon Packager in the past and am now going to classify it for my own purposes as a virus. As for MoveOnBoot by Gipo, it showed up as a tab in the program properties tabs which said to me that it was interacting with every programs startup.

Is there any way to fix this on the laptop documents? Any idea what causes this or why it happens?

I saw this before here at work but didn't even realize it had to do with whatever program is opening the existing document until today - duh!

Suddenly, reloading Word documents show them to have an added factor of about 40 lines, describing my name, document name, font, symbol, word document, auto summarize and more. -this is at the end of the regular document- that shows up properly.
To confuse things, if I close the document, without deleting anything, when next brought up from the Word File list of last documents-- this addendum is gone. If I bring up the document from my explorer window- it is still present!
If I delete this "stuff", on closing I am told that the document will be saved as a Word .doc document. --It always has been!!
Then it is "clean", whether from the Word-file list of last documents or the explorer list in My Documents.
What has happened and how can I get rid of this?

File-Open and change the "files of type" at the bottom to Word documents instead of "recover text..."

If that doesn't work, you let me know.

I am trying to create a form for colleagues to fill in. i am trying to protect the document to restrict people editing the text. but i want them to be able to type in the strengths and weakness text boxes but once i protect the document it wont let me fill in the text for these two boxes. i have a drop down list also but that seems to be working fine. any ideas how i can get this done? i have attached the document its only 1 page


Answer:Solved: Word - Forms, protect document issue

Hi there,

If you use a table instead of text boxes for the Strengths and Weaknesses section, you will be able to insert a Text Form Field in each box which enables text to be entered when the document is protected (make sure the option to allow 'filling in forms' is selected in the Restrict Formatting and Editing options.)

That's what I do anyway

Hope this helps!

Selection.Find.Text = "AREA TOTALS"
Selection.EndKey unit:=wdLine, Extend:=wdExtend
vFrom = Replace(Selection.Text, "AREA TOTAL", "")
vFrom = Trim(Replace(vFrom, Chr(13), ""))
Selection.HomeKey unit:=wdStory
ActiveDocument.SaveAs (vPath & vFrom & "_" & ".doc")

End If
