I had a collaboration site that for several reasons I decided to delete and then create a new one with the same name. In the original version I had created a duplicate DefaultLayout file and renamed the original to DefaultLayouxxxt.aspx.
Now with the completely new version of the site when I try to edit the Default.aspx file using SharePointdesigner I get this error:
soap:ServerServer was unable to process request. ---> The file
https://mytestsite/_catalogs/masterpage/DefaultLayouxxxt.aspx does not exist.
How does it know that in a completely non-existent site there once was file that it now wants. But more importantly how do you change the setting so that it wouldn't seek it?
