SaveDevice PC cannot open file for saving

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I have edited some files and also created new ones for a server of Counter Strike. Today when I tried to open the new files and save them this ERROR popped up. I think I might lost all the work I have done and I would like to know if there is a solution for this error? What are the chances that all files are lost? Thank you experts!

2. Right-click on the shortcut that is being used to launch Steam.

3. Choose “Run as administrator” option.

4. From “Library” section, right-click on the problematic game and click “Properties”.

5. Select “Local files” tab.

6. Press the button saying “Verify integrity of game cache…”.

7. Wait until the process finishes.

In the case of Windows XP:

1. Exit Steam.

2. Go to Start menu >> Run.

3. Type “regedit” >> hit Enter.

4. Go to the following registry section:

5. Right-click on the folder and select “Permissions”.

6. Check the boxes marked as “Allow” for “Admin” and “System” for “Full control” and “Read”.
