ARGHHH!!This thing is driving me crazy. I'm trying to archive my maya scene. So I save it, then choose File/Archive Scene.

Then I get an error saying I need to save my scene first. BUT I JUST DID!!!! So I saved it again then tried to archive again. Same problem. SO I actually wrote this into the script editor and executed it:

file -f -save  -options "v=0" -type "mayaAscii";
ArchiveScene;

And I STILL get the error! WTF. Anybody know what the problem is? Seriously, I've archived 10 other scenes today no problem and now I'm wasting my time with this...
Please help!! 
(I'm running maya 2012, BTW)

most likely you have a post save method running. Try calling archival from your operating systems commandline.
