Unexpected Network Error When Saving

Trying to save a Power BI file and getting "Unexpected Network Error". Have tried doing a "save as" and that has failed as well. Tried to local drive as well as to the network. I can save/export to Power BI template, but that is not much use.

 

Any ideas?

Re: Unexpected Network Error When Saving

Having exactly same error since yesterday.

Initially I was able to save locally on my PC but not anymore.

Not sure what to do with my work Smiley Sad

I also have stumbled into this error.

 

I get a popup while saving stating...

Unexpected Error

The specified network name is no longer available.

 

This occurs is I try and save & save as to network and local drives. 

The best solution I currently have is to force shut down the application through Task Manager and hope the Recovered file contains enough of my progress.

 

Sent Trace messages to MS of error.

Yup working with the same solution, ie force close and get the recovered file.

Additional bit of info - I updated to the September release the day before this started happening

@Gazzer,


I am not able to reproduce your issue in Power BI Desktop September release, I would recommend you send a frown with the error message.

Same issue here - just updated to the September release.

 

Highly frustrating as I'm finding myself trying to remember to save every few minutes now...

 

Edit to say I've sent of the 'frown report'...

Re: Unexpected Network Error When Saving

just adding my bit, I also had the issue after updating to sep version. Though havent got it again since that day. 

Though I have been receiving the unexpected closures many folds since the update.

Same issue. Sent a frown. Happens everyday if  I don't save every 30 minutes, or so it seems. Started after updating to September release.
