Steps to reproduce


When at IE11 I saving pages (as html, or mht, does not matter) to a USB-flash/SD-flash - IE showing error message "Can’t save page", but save it! When I saving pages to a local drive (M.2 SSD) - no any errors shows, all works good. It seems that the problem is about FAT - this error occurred only when saving pages to FAT32/exFAT drives, but no error when saving to NTFS SSD/USB/SD-flash drives.

So it seems that to “IE saving pages function” must be added check of destination FAT to avoid those errors!!! Because Edge still does not have option to save pages - please resolve this bug at IE!!!

PS I don’t know where I must post issue about IE11 so please send/transfer thread to IE developers.

    • I already write enough. You inside MS have better ways to contat to IE developers and to resolve this bug. So dont be so lazy - contact them and transfer report to them by yourself.
