Ahh, but this is the *only* file type that turns up this error and 
I'm backing up gigs every night on 10 machines. As I said it's only 
Photoshop Files that are written by Painter. These files copy fine 
with the finder both locally and over the network.

I've checked both the remote and backup machine's disks with Disk 
First Aid, and Norton, both turn up clean.

So I'm still stumped.
