Hi guys, I'm having a two fold issue that seems to stem from the issue in windows 7 where it wont allow you to over-write a file after opening it up for editing. Hopefully this topic has been discussed to death here and my google searches were oblivious to the answer, but im not able to find it. We've been turning off the preview pane by "changing views" in the windows explorer (which i might add, windows seven likes to "Forget" and return it to ITS' desired settings) but now im also having problems saving simple meta-data into files such as keywords and tags in adobe bridge and i believe its related to this very same issue. It's as tho a "preview" is being generated somewhere, (else?) and now that we've turned the preview pane off, i cannot tell where its coming from. Does anyone know if this is related to "windows aero peek?" or any of those "advanced" settings in visual performance tab of the "My computer" properties?

any help is as always, greatly appreciated,
