I have a project I am working on using my desktop. My folder is on a portable drive plugged into the desktop. I pulled the drive and plugged it in to my MS Surface which also has the same version of FM2019v15.0.3.603 to work on my project while I was out. Back on the desktop when opening the project, 10 out of 13 files were corrupt and unusable including the .backup files.

 

Why did this happen?

Did you finish using FM before ejecting the drive? Did Windows say it was all clear to pull the plug?

Yes, that goes without saying (at least you know that about me now).

What did you mean by Corruption of file?

Is it crashing while opening or are there any corruption in text/flow?

Have you tried MifWashing* these files?? .

*MifWash is a Utility plugin given with FM .

"This file has been corrupted. Please check you file system, disk, and network. Tr opening the most recent backup file."

 

I will have to look into *mifwash. I have since used Notepad++ to open the files where there was enough man readable data to get about 80% of my content. The files I can no longer open comprise about 120 pages of my project. I have only been using Framemaker for about a year and a half and haven't had this issue before.
