Hi there, 

 

I'm having an issue that whenever my computer rests for a while, it restarts and then my illustrator documents unlink random pngs that have been in the file previously. The pngs haven't been moved or renamed or anything, but when I open it and try to relink there, Illustrator stops responding. Then when I open it and try to relink in the links panel, nothing happens. Then if I try to just place that same file in, I get a dialog box that says "invalid link, cannot read file." Any idea how to rememdy this?

 

Thanks!

How deeply buried is this link? Is the full file path more than 255 characters long? Try shortening the file path and see if it helps.
