Protected document becomes unprotected after save

Hello,

Our customers have been complaining about document protection settings being lost after saving documents. We’ve created a test project to see what causes the loss of this protection. All the test project does is the following:

Dim objAsposeWordDocument As New Aspose.Words.Document(“protected.doc”)
objAsposeWordDocument.Save(“savedoc.doc”)

after saving, the document has lost all protection. I’ve attached the document on which we are testing the protection loss.

I’d like to know what causes the loss of protection, and how we can resolve this issue.
