I have about 6 files from a student and logged in as my test account and copied the files to my local desktop, if I keep opening and closing them I eventually get an error 4 on some of them. Students sometimes get them on first launch of trying to opening the files on login.
Cannot open "hans2.indd".
The file "hans2.indd" is damaged (Error code: 4).
If I close Indesign and open it again then the app opens the files again. I have seen where the file can't be open again though after closing Indesign. Something is wonky somewhere with Indesign.
No one has any clues or some issues??

Unfortunately it's more likley something is wonky with the local configurations and you have some sort of software conflict that is corrupting your work. If this were a bug there would be LOTS of similar reports here.
Nothing out of the ordinary....CS6 was created with AAMEE 3.1 and OS X image created.
Users login and get fresh preferences. I found before that Adobe Indesign was not using proxy settings set in the system so it was causing Indesign to crash like we talked about here.....I figured that out on my own pretty much.
If you watched the video above how can the files open over and over and then all of sudden say I am corrupt. Close Indesign and open it back up and magically the files start opening again. Looks like a code problem in Indesign just like the PMPack not using the proxy settings set in OS X.
I have tried everything from removing preferences so the Adobe apps are fresh on launch for users, etc. Changed permissions, files are local, re-installed 8.0.1 and no luck. I'm finding today that if you keep opening a file over and over you get random results like in the video I posted earlier. Just don't get how the files open fine and then all of sudden like cache gets corrupt or something and the files are all of sudden damaged. Close out of Indsign open back up and they are fine. Something is wrong there.
While having the error 4, I removed the users Adobe prefs and cache and still got errors. Only way to fix it was to quit and relaunch Indesign. Students will be using InDesign and all of sudden it crash, its the only app with any problems. Well somewhat, we found a small issue with Dreamweaver as well, but not a stability problem like InDesign. http://forums.adobe.com/message/5188192#5188192
