Corrupting

Recommended Posts

VW seems to be corrupting my files often. Never had the trouble with VW 9.5

I have an important document that went down today. Is there any way I can try to recover the document?.

I've posted this before and read other coruting posts since. I have not changed the way I use vectorworks between VW 11 and VW 9.5 so it a new problem to me. I will take more care in closing properly from now on. (no red window screen buttons)

The message I get when I try to open is

"This is an unrecognized file. It may be a Vectorworks file created by a newer version of the application, it may be a very old MiniCAD file, it may have been created bu another application, or it may have been corrupted by a hardware or system error."

Running 0SX 10.3 on both host server (G4 iMac 1ghz 768mb) and Laptop G4 1ghz 768)

Have you run disk first aid on the local computer and/or the server?

What version of OS 10.3 are you using?

OS 10.3.3

I have not run dis first aid? What is disk first Aid and where is it on my computer?.

We have had another file corrupted today.

I read somewhere something about printers incompatability causing damage. We use a cannon s6300 any known problems with that?.

Justin, FYI: to repair permissions on Mac OS 10xx go to your HARD DRIVE>APPLICATIONS>UTILITIES and find a program called DISK UTILITY. Double click it to open. Select your START UP DRIVE, click once on the FIRST AID tab, and then on VERIFY DISK PERMISSIONS. This will take a little while. When it is done click on REPAIR DISK PERMISSIONS (I think you can actually just REPAIR without VERIFYING, but am not entirely sure...). Everyone I talk to that seems to know, says that we should be running this utility at least once a week and that it is a replacement of sorts for the old classic OS 'rebuild desktop'. As always BACK UP every important file every day!!! Hope that helps-
