Dreamweaver question or maybe a server issue

I'm not quite sure how to explain this so I'll just do a blow by blow...

According to the sysadmin, I have the highest level of permissions. So I log into the webserver and navigate to inetpub/wwwroot/ so on and so forth. Find the file I'd like to edit and open it in Dreamweaver. Yes, I know, bad idea. Get over it. I have a backup.

Anyway. I choose to save as and i get an error telling me that it "encountered a sharing violation while accessing (file path)/MCF74.tmp. Then i hit ok and close the file in Dreamweaver w/o saving it.

Next I go to Windows Explorer to look in the directory i was just accessing and the file I was "editing" is gone. Poof. Kaput. No longer there. Like I said, I have a backup so i simply copy it over and everything is hunky dory.

What I want to know is WHY Dreamweaver is making this file disappear. Or is it a problem on the server?

Our sysadmin just told me that SMB 2.0 is what the server uses and that might causes some funkiness with temp files. In other words, the file didn't disappear, it was changed to a temp file which of course is a hidden file.

I can't tell you what your server problem is and why your sharing violation is occurring but what are you developing in- html, .aspx, .php? The file might be being used by the server for the site.

I always copy a file local, open in DW, edit and then copy back to the server, either overwriting the original file or after incrementally changing the file names so they can both exist on the server. Once on the server, I change the names as needed.

I usually do that too. But all I had to do was comment out a line of code that displayed an image. Nothing major. So I just did it on the server. And it's just a straight html file.
