I'm working on a 2-day old computer with a brand-new CC subscription. I've got an InDesign document that I saved normally, with no error messages last night. After experiencing some glitches with InDesign this morning, I saved my file, restarted and am getting "Error: code 5" with no idea how to salvage the files. Adobe. What is going on?
Experienced same problem yesterday. Brand new 2018 MacBook Pro and the most updated indesign CC.
May have been a server disconnect as when I went to save, wheel of death. Restart computer, error 5 corrupt.
That could be a possibility, would request you to please share your files on the above-mentioned email address and we will try our best to recover it.
An easy way to minimize file corruption/damage is to either:
We do this at the end of every day when we're packing up for the evening, or whenever we're ending work on a file during the day. Works like a charm; we rarely have a damaged file to deal with.
FYI, the plain File / Save doesn't give you a clean file. It just tacks stuff on to the end of the code.
Thanks for sharing this workflow.
