I think he he means File->SaveAs for notebook B. The SaveAs dialog opens 
up folder A instead of folder B. I have misplaced files this way. I will 
do SaveAs in order to make a copy of a file -- intending it go in the 
same folder where the original lives -- and the copy ends up in some 
other folder. It's confusing, to say the least.
