Could it be that you have the OpenStudio directory of your model opened in windows explorer or something else? For example, if your model is saved in "MyModel.osm", there's a directory "MyModel" that is auto-created by the OpenStudioApplication. When you save, it tries to rewrite everything and it looks like some file is locked by another process.

Thank you Adrien. You make a good point. I have tried it such that the only application I have open is OpenStudio and I still get the same error message. I suspect it is because the files are located on a folder connected to the cloud. When I move the files to my desktop, the problem seems to go away.
