TRIM 7.1 SP 1 Weird Behavior when drag/drop into folder
So with the new 7.1 service pack we've noticed that when you drop an electronic document from your desktop onto a folder, it can result in errors in certain circumstances. If the record type you select has either "Client", "Representative", or "Addressee" as a required field, TRIM will report that the required field was not provided... and then doesn't save the record. If you remove the mandatory indicator then you will get the registration form; otherwise you're stuck! If you try this with a manadatory additional field it works fine.
I assume it has something to do with the new way in which the "Verify" method of the object behaves. Though TRIM Context should still let you save it.

Gotta love TRIM! :)
I did a different work-around to ensure the same functionality existed. Instead of using the stock properties I made a UDF for each, using different names, wrote a script to copy the location to the new field for all existing records, and then set the UDF's to be manadatory. Worked like a charm!
