There are a couple of issues with major versioning in SharePoint 2010 that prevent users saving files into document libraries. Things like this can be very frustrating for a client so it is worth being aware of these when designing SharePoint solutions in the hopes they are avoided. The issues are:
- Saving files from Office 2007 fails when a document library has major versioning enabled and contains a required field
- Copying files using Windows Explorer fails when a document library contains a required field and column default value settings for this field
I believe these are bugs with the product and both have been raised with Microsoft support so hopefully they are fixed in future updates. In the meantime this articles covers the details and some possible workarounds in case you run into the same issues.
