Autosave with Word not working on USB drive

Hi,

My daughter has a laptop with Vista pre-installed and has been using Word wilst doing her work. She tells me that Word is not Autosaving to her USB pen drive and she has lost much work when closing Word as the system advises that it cannot save file to location 'X'. She had assumed that the work was being saved every couple of minutes.

She has tried various Microsoft Office suites [XP, 03, etc] and has just downloaded a trial of Office 2007 from Microsoft - but it did the same thing again this morning. I have recommended that she ONLY saves to her local drive at the moment.

If the document is copied from the local drive to the USB pen, it can be opened, but typing long essays [she is a teacher] is proving difficult as the USB drive is her preferred option to move these files between various PCs.

Any ideas what the problem could be as it is obviously not linked to a specific version of Office?

TIA

Paul
