We have Director MX 2004 installed over an Apple network, and
have one major problem: when a user attempts to SAVE AS, Director
trashes the file completely. When we previously used Netware
servers for user id authentication and storage this problem
didn’t exist. It has arisen since we switched to an Xserve
Apple server connected to a Storevault storage system, and appears
to be a bug in Director – as it is ONLY Director that has
this problem. There is no such problem with any other application,
including Adobe products such as Flash and Photoshop which also use
Is this a known bug – and what can be done about it?
Even if we could disable the Save As option in Director, users
would lose all their work if they started from a file on a drive
for which they have no write permissions.
