This usually pops up if someone else has modified / opened / copied
the file while it's open on your desktop.

If you're sure that no one has, it's likely to be network error or a
permissions problem on the server and can be ignored.
It happens most often when your network occasionally goes up and down,
or you're working remotely on a VPN connection, this type of error
occurs whenever there's a momentary disconnect / reconnect.
