I thnk it is still the same problem but in this case it is with the scratch disk. I have a feeling that there is not enough continuous room on the scratch to handle this file even though it might appear that the fie is small compared to the size of the available space on the scratch.
Or what's behind door number two
Perhas it uses a font that is corrupt in that it is swelling the font data base which has become bloated.
Of course I could be wrong in both cases which means it is behind the mysterious door nuber three.
BTW did you try moving the Adobe Illustrator CS (#) Settings Folder?
I find yout first option unlikely since I have over 300GB free on the primary hard disk and a second drive available for scratch as well, unless continuous means I need to defrag or something.
Option two seems unlikely since it has no type in it.
I have no clue what you are talking about with the Settings Folder. Please educate me.
I figured out how to remove the Settings Folder......no help.
Try a new user account and log into that new user.
That didn't help either, but thanks for the suggestion.

Yes you may have to defrag.
But why not try it on an different computer?
I marked that as "Helpful".
Defragging didn't help. I have another machine with CS on it but not CS4. It's an older computer and I didn't really think it could even open this file under normal conditions (because it's a large complex file/image), but it did. It messed up a bunch of my textures and stuff, and it predates symbols, so it's quite a mess, but I guess it's slightly better than starting my revisions again from scratch.
The problem wasn't really solved, but an acceptable work around was presented and I didn't have time to wait for anyone to stumble upon a true solution.
