I have had yet another file lost with an error "Cannot create file".
I had been composing a text file, cutting & pasting from a number of other files, and after perfecting the edit select the "save current file" icon from the toolbar.
This should have saved the file into the current directory, which I had previously saved other files, but instead I get an error "Cannot create file", and lose all the content.
There is no trace of this anywhere on my disc.
I know I should be more careful, and after losing a file I carefully copy to scratchpad BEFORE saving, but after a month of no problems you become complacent.
Vedit seems to have a mean streak, and waits until I have spent 45 minutes editing a file before entering random loss mode.
I have reported this in the past, but the nature of the error is not reproducible.
At the least Vedit could NOT delete existing contents if it cannot save a file, for whatever reason.
