Saving PDF files to my google drive that is synced to my compute

Hi,
I connected my google drive from one of my email accounts to be synced to my desktop so that I can easily save files into folders on that drive. Word documents save perfectly; however, any PDF I try to save I get an error message "the file may be read only or another user may have it open, please save the document with a different name or in a different folder".

The other google drive from another email account is able to save the PDF's so why won't this one?
Thanks,
Jessica

Hi

Try this:

Before saving the file, change the name of it, you can for instance just add a number at the end of the title.

I've tried that and it doesn't work; it has something to do with it being a PDF. I can save it anywhere else on my computer too without error but when I save it to the Google drive I have synced on my desktop that error pops up. (It still then saves the title where i was wanting after the error message but the file won't open)

I see, save the file to your hard disk, close all applications and then save them on Google Drive.

You trust Google Drive?

I do but my goal is to be able to save them in 1 step... I'm able to do this with another google drive folder I have on my computer so don't see why I can't with the new one ?
