Ahh.. so your running a windows version of office, inside parralells.

What version of windows are you running in parralells?

And is it only publisher that cant save files properly? ( we need to know if this is a system wide windows or office issue, or just publisher)

Running Windows 7- Just saved MSW text file to desktop; no problem.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
must be either Publisher problem only, or, file size problem... Now indicating low disk space (file size is 70mb. So think I have just solved this one myself. Do you agree?
Microsoft Office Technician: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

If your planning on increasing the disk allocation for the hard drive within parralells,

and if doing so solves the issue then you may have just solved the issue yourself.

Keep me posted, if it worked let me know so I can send the refund link.. If it doesnt work, send a reply and we can continue working the issue together.. As it could be a permissions error blocking your file save~

While trying to delete large files on the over loaded "C Drive I from Windows 7 went into "Computer " and when I clicked Hardware devices, the screen/mouse froze. As of now my Mac is locked up. Even the screen saver isn't working. ..

P.S.- I have only a smart phone & and IPad working now.
Microsoft Office Technician: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

Ive just seen your replies.

In the meantime, did you force a shutdown of your mac and restart? If so,for safe measure on the mac side we should run this repair

Open your finder ( magnifying glass ) type in disk utility, and launch the disk utility application.

On the left side of the disk utility window, click your mac hd, then at the lower right hand side, click repair permissions .

Why am I doing this? I know for sure now that my Local C Drive was full. What I don't know is how to change the allocation of more mb to my C Drive. How can I check to see how full my C Drive is? I do know I can just delete large files or transfer them to my remote HD. If you can answer those questions you will be worth your salt...
Microsoft Office Technician: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

The last thing you had mentioned is that the mac was frozen, hence why I suggested the hard shutdown and permissions repair.

If you want to increase the size allocated to the hard drive in parralells, you can do that from the control manager as follows.

http://kb.parallels.com/en/113972

That will allow you to assign more hard drive space. Once you have more room on the drive..

You should be able to access the c drive within windows and delete folders and files normally.

Running Parallels, I don't need to delete files from Windows (a risky move requiring backing up all my files) as I can do that easily from the Mac side. I am bothered by your statement that "I suggested the hard shutdown." Reviewing our conversation here, I fail to see any advice from you that I do a hard shutdown. I do see that after I had already given up saving my unsaved file, and done a hard shutdown (the logical way to deal with a frozen screen), you asked me if that was what I had done. The point is important, because it goes to the issue of whether you were able to answer my questions. I don't see any indication that you gave me actionable advice that worked...
Microsoft Office Technician: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

Ive suggested multiple steps that youve either questioned why you should do them, or you did them and moved on to the next issue /message.

The conversation in its entirety is view-able from beginning to end.

I see you didnt respond to my suggestion and explanation on increasing the hard disk side within parralells for windows.

Also, the whole point of deleting files would be to delete files you dont need, which isnt risky at all.

As far as where to go from here, you dont seem to be seeking advice or help at this time, so Im going to send this link and call it a day~
