Subject   st: Question about file...could not be opened

I'm using Stata/SE 11.2 and I'm having a problem when I'm saving multiple files within a .do file at different points.  I consistently get messages which say "file...could not be opened r(603)".  Which point in the .do file this occurs seems random - in other words, it is not always the same save command which causes the program to stop. 

This is not a case where, say, the folder isn't correctly specified or something like that.  In fact, if I run the .do file over and over, eventually it gets to the end and this error does not appear.

This never used to happen to me.  I suspect that this is happening because I'm using Windows Live Mesh to sync across computers but I don't know for certain.

Does this happen to anyone else?  If so, have you found a solution to the problem?

In advance, I thank everyone for considering this question and possible solutions.
