Solid Edge file extension changes to .tmp file due to network connectivity

Here is a complex network issue, and the steps taken in order to troubleshoot:

11)      User opens Solid Edge file (status available from a network location)
22)      After working on the file ( in this case user creates a flat pattern on the draft file and gets this error “The drawing view couldn’t be created possibly due to geometry errors in the model”)
33)      First recommendation is to go back to the part/asm model and run geometry inspector on the model
44)      Also the file extension in this test case changed from .dft to .tmp
55)      Save/Save as option greyed out. File status changed to read only
66)      We had to exit out of Solid Edge
77)      Browse to the .tmp file location and change the extension from .tmp to .dft

Here are the screen shots that were used to troubleshoot this issue:
