REVIT Unable to Write to XX it is Read Only or Opened by Someone Else

CADclips Announces New $19, $39 and $99 REVIT Video Training Tutorial Subscription

I see this same REVIT error a few times a week with different users when trying to 'Synchronize with Central'.

So, in REVIT you are able to 'Create New Local' file BUT then when you try to sinc you get the error above.

My hard earned (head banging) experience has uncovered that this is almost always caused because the User does not have 'Editable' rights to the folder the file is saved in.

Do yourself a big favour and make sure, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the user has 'Editable' rights to the folder.

Do this first and foremost before you bother wasting your time trouble shooting any other potential causes.

This should be the number 1 item to check on before doing anything else.

Don't 'assume' anything. Make sure the IT people actually visually varify this, (preferably with you by their side).
