    Hi,

    I've just installed a newly bought Office 2011 (14.0.1, EN, business) on my Mac Pro (2010, 10.6.5). Word doesn't open any file which is not located on the main system HDD, while all my files are stored on a separate (internal) drive, and I'd like to keep it in this way. I've never had such issue before, so have not even a clue about a possible source of the problem (bug?) nor workaround.

    If I move a file from its drive to the system one, Word is able to open it.

    Thanks!

    What is the format of your "separate (internal) drive"?

    You know, it's not the issue. I can open these files with the previous Word version. I've run DiskWarrior, everything's alright. It looks like a Word's 2011 issue.

    Hm, I also can not save a doc on any other internal hdd (I have 3 of them), except for the main one where the OS is installed... Although I can open and save docs on an external hdd.

    No clues? I could open / save these docs in all previous Word versions, thus I think it should be something Word 2011 specific.
