Security Advice Error while saving files in Google Drive

Post by Cyber » Sun May 15, 2016 4:36 pm

Hi,
As the topic says, i'm facing errors while saving files in google drive. When i open any file from Google drive, it opens fine, and i can edit and save it but after some time, say 5-8 min when i try to save the file it shows me the error Security Advice:Reading and writing of files may not be possible for illegal copies, and it then doesn't save the file.

I was starting to like Softmaker, it is, in my experience, the fastest, low resource consuming and almost complete office but it would be useless for me if it cant open and edit Google drive files.

Please save your files on the HDD first, then edit and save them and afterwards save them in Google Drive.

Yeah, I have had this too, several times (no rhyme or reason to it). Another example of this great activation scheme SoftMaker has going on. Since SMO 2010 I've been saying on the forum, please don't mess with your portable option, please don't go to this horrendous online activation scheme that others are opting for, etc. And what do they do?

But everyone is online all the time now, right? WRONG.

I came here to see if Martin or anyone else replied to my post, but of course they haven't. They are very selective about what they reply to. They replied to the initial praise, until I found out even the free portable version requires online activation after having made a personal portable version, and then it's utter silence. When it starts being OK with a company that you can't use their software at any given time then people should start looking elsewhere.

Fail, SoftMaker. Fail.

I am doing that for now, but its not at all convenient. I am able to do that with other office suites(MS Office, WPS Office etc) but they hog up a bit too much resources making my laptop lag a little. I wanted a traditional, lite and complete Office suite, and FreeOffice is, as i see it, great.
BTW, back to problem,
You can easily try it by downloading Google drive, making a word file, then edit it and then try to save it after 5-6 min. Will upload an SS when i get home.

I installed FreeOffice 2016 and the Google Drive app in a fresh installed Windows 10 Pro (in a VMWare machine) and until now have no problems opening and saving files into Google Drive. I will try to reproduce the issue here. Please send a screenshot if possible. Thank you!
