If anyone can help me understand how to track/trace this issue, I would appreciate it.

OS: Mageia4 64 bit
LibreOffice (Build ID

HP Pavilion p6-2419
Kingston USB memory stick, (DT 101 G2 ... 16GB)

Ext4 in both cases

    (1) Insert USB drive
    (2) Access USB drive with Dolphin
    (3) Close Dolphin
    (4) Open LibreOffice
        (4.1) Close empty text document
        (4.2) Open existing spreadsheet on local drive
            (4.2.1) Compete task(s) in spreadsheet
(4.2.2) Save changes to local drive under same name/same location (4.2.3) Save As to USB drive with similar name ... date added to name
        (4.3) Close spreadsheet
    (5) Exit LibreOffice

Sometimes (seems to be random) at step 4.2.3 the Save As fails ... error message indicates that the original document is opened by another user? Sorry, I cannot find the actual error message at the moment ... will be able to supply it when it happens again, of course.

I follow the above procedure carefully because it seems to experience this particular issue the least. The only exception would be if steps 1 through 3 have already been done, and the USB drive is still attached (has not been removed).

What can I do to track/trace this issue on my machine?

Thank you
Fred James
