Could not save project????

I suddenly have started to get this message stating that PHPStorm "could not save project!" Not sure what is causing this, but I also get a message stating that project files are read-only. I've cleared the read-only several times, but it does no go. I am using CVS and we recently updated our CVS server. PHPStorm is also now running this edit command about this same time, and I'm not sure why.

I turned Edit background off, and now when I exit I get Edit Options screen. Why am I getting that? We're not using watch or anything like that.

Hi Keith,

One possibility about "magically appeared" (if that is the case) read-only attribute which you unable to remove or it gets reset in few moments back may be caused by some virus (I have dealt with similar symptoms myself less than 2 weeks ago -- but in my case it were folders like "Program Files", "My Documents" etc).

If that is not caused by virus but by some other legit software then I may suggest you to use tools like Process Monitor to see which process sets those Read-Only attributes (you can setup a filter to monitor specific file or folder). At least you may know which program is causing this (maybe it has nothing to do with PhpStorm).

Have you tried to delete whole Intranet_Local folder and recheckout it from CVS? And then try to save something in phpstorm. Btw, as i understand, you are running IIS, maybe it locks some project files?

Yea, I tried that right after I posted and it does seem to work. The problem is, we have a bunch of these (with different branches.) Oh well, at least it's fixable.

That started happening to me when I told Windows to optimize the project folder for Documents. Right-Click -> Properties -> Customize. After you do this, Windows Explorer will never again let you change the read-only attribute on that folder. Microsoft says that this is by design:
