  1. Why I don't know but this is how you get rid of it apparantly.

    If you have the Error just go to: Edit town and use the Just continue option. Then change something and you can save again. (Needs to be confirmed)
    Failing that, minimise the game window with your current game (the one you want to save) still running and go to your Sims 3 savegame folder (\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Saves by default on Vista). Delete any bad files (these are the 'failed' saves), delete or rename the .sims3 and .backup files for the current game and then return to the game window and save.
    Restart the game or the computer.

    Says that on the Sims Wikia atleast.
