I am running Nisus Writer Classic 6.5 on an Apple Mac Mini with Mac OS X 10.4.2. (Classic OS 9.2)
When saving a document onto a shared volume on our Windows 2000 Server a duplicate file is created with an * at the end. (Even with this option turned off in preferences!)
The original file without the * disappears. When opening the file with the * any text typed prior to the last save has not been saved.... as you can imagine, very annoying!
I have tried turning off extensions as mentioned in other posts but I still get the same problem. (I have another 11 of these to install in our business and need a solution so my poor users can finally put away their 7200's!)
Also if you delete the file with the * at the end the oringinal file without the * returns... only with none of the text since the last save also!
Has anyone else had this problem? If anyone has a similar set up and everything works fine, please please let me know what I am doing wrong!
Nisus Thesaurus, Nisus Writer Classic– this is the place for all other Nisus products.

I have had 0 replies and am not a happy bunny... I have contacted Nisus Support and the sales guy who sold me the upgrade in the first place, neither had a sensible solution.
I therefore will be changing my users over to an alternative piece of software that does work in our environment!
