can't create on this disk error -- why?

Post

I am looking at a table of data, then choosing Save/Send Records As: Excel.  I try to save to my desktop, but get a "File.xls could not be created on this disk.  Use a different name, make more room on the disk, unlock it or use a different disk"

 

I've tried different names (even though there are only two other icons on my entire desktop).  There is more than 50gb of available space.  It's not locked.  I can use Filemaker's File > Export tool just fine.  I can create any other file I want on the desktop.  So, why am I getting this error??
