Hi all. Looking for your insights on an issue. Here's the scenario..
I have a standalone Win/Mac app that autosaves user data to a stack file as the user moves from card to card. Typically, files reach sizes of 100-200k. Normally, this works great. But a couple of times a year, some user will manage to get corrupted data causing his stack files to be unusable. I've opened some of these corrupt stack files in a text editor and found the data loss shows the Save operation was interrupted. There's no garble. Just an abrupt end to the data and the file. I've found a common link in these cases -- either the app is on a network drive or the stack file is on a network drive. My theory is that network save operations are slower than saving on a local drive, and somehow this contributes to the data loss. But how? All theories (except conspiracy) are welcome!
