No, I am working on a stand-alone machine...no networking. So it's 
standard c drive. And the paths are correctly specified in settings.

Yes, one timed backup file exists...from the previous day. Otherwise epz 
files were created only when I saved.

You indicate one can turn on/off timed backups.  How? I certainly can't 
find this option under settings.

After 3 days the Entry Manager is still open with the still unsaved project!

Could the reason be that you are working on a network server ? Eg drive h or j'
check if the drive is available with your file system manager.also if a timed backup file exists. As i remember the default is to create one each 10 minutes unless you turned that off . Anyway 8 hours is quite long -

Emne: [EpiData-list] Cannot save my project

I am working with Epidata Entry Client (v1.1.1.1). I created a project
using an imported Stata file and for two days have happily been editing
and adding data. Of course, each case was saved when moving to another
one, and the project was saved at intervals after roughly 10 cases had
been worked on.

Then, after a working session of some 6-8 hours without saving the
project, the program is suddenly refusing to save the project.  No
errors are reported when saving cases, but I get this message every time
I try to save the project:

      Unable to save project to: [path and file name]
      Error message: Unable to create file "[path and file name]"

The path and file name are both correct.  So why am I suddenly
encountering this inability to save the project with the same name that
it was created with? I can continue to work on the project, but I can't
save my work.

Of course, Entry Client does not have a "Save as" function, so trying a
different name is not an option.

Any suggestions?
