Description Alex Lovett 2013-09-06 11:36:12 UTC
Any changes I make in editor, when I goto Save it looks like it has saved, but reopening the file shows no changes have been saved. I have checked permissions, no errors in the log, very strange!

Even when I create a new C# file from inside Xamarin, it too will not save any changes, but it does create the file succesfully.

I recently upgraded to latest Alpha and started using Source Analysis

I have narrowed it down to being unable to save files on partitions and drives that are not the boot partition. If the files are on my boot drive they save fine. My drives are all formatted the same and have normal characters in name and such, and all of this was working perfectly earlier.

Moving my whole project to boot drive fixes this issue
