File I/O Error Message

Apr 25, 2013 10:51 AM

I have an ai file that I can not save with out getting the File I/O error message. One person suggested that this file may be corrupted since I've been bouncing back and forth between 2 different Illustrator programs. I use CS-4 at work, save as CS-3 format then continue working on it at home. I tried copying each layer to a new fresh doc. but still get the error code. Is there a way to fix this file? Both back-up files I have behave the same way.

    Nobody can tell you anything. You are not even telling us the exact wording of thne error message, much less offering any system info or details about what is involved in your files. Much too vague and imprecise on all accounts...

    I usually save the file to a flash drive so that I can take it home.


    Don't. Save them to a local fixed drive and only then move them to the storage media. This could be all sorts of things like insufficient USB bus speed or driver issues with another device plugged on to the USB bus just as it could be more generic file I/O problems. Saving to a conventional location no doubt will eliminate the majority of your problems....
