    Network connection was lost for the file

    Kat1585

      Indesign CS4 6.0.6

      2012 27" iMac

      OSX 10.8

       

      My InDesign has been crashing and I get the following two error messages.

       

      "The network connection was lost for the file...

       

      "Adobe InDesign is shutting down. A serious error was detected. Please restart InDesign to recover work in any unsaved InDesign documents."

       

      As a result of the crash my Indesign file get deleted as well as the parent folder and all of its content including various file types. This has happened twice to me now, luckily I am running hourly backups but it is still extremely frustrating. I am not sure if this is a problem with the Adobe software or my mac server, but I thought I would start here first.

       

       

      Thanks for any help that you can offer

          "Adobe InDesign is shutting down. A serious error was detected."

          Normal, but arguably unacceptable behavior with InDesign if the network hiccups or stops while working accross a network. Adobe/InDesign does not formally support network work, which is insane in the typical environment.

          The loss of a file or folder is not typical.
