I am using SharePoint 2019, I can't create a new folder in a document library and getting this error message:

The server was unable to save the form at this time. Please try again

I can't also add a new item in SharePoint List or upload a new file in a document library as well!

Note > My farm is standalone server for development use!

Please Help!

Best answer

The server was unable to save the form at this time. Please try again | SharePoint 2019 | SharePoint 2016

In case, all users are facing this issue, so the root cause related to a server issue as the following:

  1. Memory usage is very high.
  2. The database drivers are full.
  3. SharePoint Search Host Controller service started and consumes a lot of memory.
  4. Anonymous Authentication disabled in IIS.
  5. “minFreeMemoryPercentageToActivateService” attribute is not set in the serviceHostingEnvironment tag in Web.Config.
  6. There is an issue in the SecurityTokenServiceApplication.
  7. The farm is not updated with at least Public Update / Service Pack 1.

In case, a specific user is facing this issue, so the root cause related to the following:

  1. If your list has unique permissions, and a user/group has permissions only on that list and the user has limited or no access to the site level, then you will run into this error.
  2. Some free add-on like download manager may raise this issue.

Please, check the details steps to solve this issue at The server was unable to save the form at this time. Please try again
