I checked that option when I first saw this popup but this file I am opening belong to my own restricted folder and no one else can access that.
Just to let you know , I am on EG 7.1, are you on EG 7.1?
Have you ever seen this popup on EG 7.1?

I've seen this pop-up when I open any file that's in a project with another application.
eg a .ods file with LibreOffice.
Working with 7.1 snd 7.15

That notification is intended to warn you when a file has been altered outside of EG, so you do not unintentionally clobber some other person or processes changes. However, there have been some rare cases where that notification was incorrectly displayed (false positives) (ex. problems getting back accurate last modified timestamp). First, I would make sure you have the latest EG version and latest update, since improvements have been made to that feature along the way.
If you are certain this is a false positive and prefer to turn off the feature altogether (though do so at your own risk, since you will no longer be notified of true positives either), you can do so (starting in EG 7.15) by adding this config file option to your SEGuide.exe.config file (in the EG installation directory):
<add key="DisableFileChangeNotification" value="true" />
Note: Make sure to remove the comment block (<!-- and -->) from around the default <appSettings> element in SEGuide.exe.config.

I have already tried this. It gives me another kind of pop-up. and strange thing it is happening to some of .sas files that was created earlier.
If I create a new .sas file and save it and then make any changes , it does not pop up at that time.
Any idea why this can happen?

They are on a common path. But i am not editing them from the common path.
I am first copying them to my own path and then trying edit and run them. That time i getting the pop-up.
We do not have any version controlling.

Well, these were the last ideas I had. As I think this i not intended behaviour, I suggest you bring this to the attention of SAS technical support. It's either a real (if small) bug in EG, or some weird interaction with some software (AV?) running in the background, which could justify a note in the knowledge base.

@KurtBremser Thank you.
What I observed is if I am writing a new code, saving it in my path and then editing and running it. It never pops up with the mentioned notification.
But if I am trying to edit a code which is already existing in a path and running it , I am getting the pop-up. Though i am copying the code to my own path and making changes there (as I mentioned earlier) , I will still get the pop-up.
Will this help you to find what is cause?
