After making a change to fix a build error, the error keeps recurring. VS will not save edits, even explicit saves. Once it occurs, it continues to occur, at least during that session. Closing VS and opening the file in another editor shows that the changes were not saved.

C++ projects, both vs11 and vs12 toolsets.

Low frequency, has occurred at least 3 times in separate sessions. Might be the same file.

Seen in 2 separate projects, 1 vs12 toolset, 1 vs11 toolset, on 2 different computers, 1 Win8 64, 1 Win 8.1 64 build 9431. Today it was not only a different project and file, it was XML instead of C++ source.

Unfortunately the code is proprietary. Will try to repro with a test project. Restarting VS 2013 fixes the issue anyway, until it happens again.

Also going to move (uninstall/reinstall) to a newer VS2013 build, 12.0.20617.1 --> 12.0.20709.1.
