WEBDAV cannot save office files RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using WEBDAV in windows explorer.

    Adding new Word file to subfolder works fine. Opening file to edit works fine. But we have problem with saving file.

    Microsoft Word is trying to save tmp file '~WRD0000.tmp' but can't do this.

    WEBDAV trace:

    LOCK:       /subfolder/tesest.docx
    UNLOCK:     /subfolder/tesest.docx
    LOCK:       /subfolder/tesest.docx
    PROPFIND:   /subfolder/~WRD0000.tmp
    PROPFIND:   /subfolder/~WRD0000.tmp
    PROPFIND:   /subfolder
    PROPFIND:   /subfolder
    PROPFIND:   /subfolder
    PROPFIND:   /subfolder
    

    When we click many times (~10) save button, Word finally saves it.

    Trace of working save:

    PROPFIND:   /subfolder/~WRL3337.tmp
    UNLOCK:     /subfolder/tesest.docx
    HEAD:       /subfolder/~WRD3302.tmp
    PUT:        /subfolder/~WRD3302.tmp
    PROPPATCH:  /subfolder/~WRD3302.tmp
    UNLOCK:     /subfolder/~WRD3302.tmp
    GET:        /subfolder/tesest.docx
    PROPFIND:   /subfolder/~WRD3302.tmp
    LOCK:       /subfolder/~WRD3302.tmp
    GET:        /subfolder/~WRD3302.tmp
    PROPPATCH:  /subfolder/~WRD3302.tmp
    MOVE:       /subfolder/tesest.docx
    MOVE:       /subfolder/~WRD3302.tmp
    PROPFIND:   /subfolder/~WRL3337.tmp
    GET:        /subfolder/~WRL3337.tmp
    LOCK:       /subfolder/~WRL3337.tmp
    UNLOCK:     /subfolder/~WRL3337.tmp
    LOCK:       /subfolder/~WRL3337.tmp
    PROPFIND:   /subfolder/tesest.docx
    GET:        /subfolder/tesest.docx
    LOCK:       /subfolder/tesest.docx
    UNLOCK:     /subfolder/tesest.docx
    LOCK:       /subfolder/tesest.docx
    PROPPATCH:  /subfolder/~WRL3337.tmp
    PROPFIND:   /subfolder/~%24tesest.docx
    GET:        /subfolder/~%24tesest.docx
    UNLOCK:     /subfolder/~WRL3337.tmp
    DELETE:     /subfolder/~WRL3337.tmp
    

    When we try to add to webdav new created file '~WRD0000.tmp' it doesn't work. When we try to add to webdav new created file '~WRD3337.tmp' it works fine.

    Any ideas how to resolve our problem with editing office files in webdav file explorer?
