Corrupt attachments

Unread postby niels » Mon Jun 02, 2014 11:13 am

Today I noticed that there a some attachments that I can't open on my desktop computer at work.

Here are a few examples:
- PDF file: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=269#p2483 I replaced the file on the server
- DOCX and XLSX files: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=269#p2509 I replaced the files on the server
- XLSM file: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=269&start=15#p2523 I replaced the file on the server
- JPG file: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=197&start=45#p2562

It seems the files are corrupted when I download them. The strange thing is that I yesterday checked for example the XLSM file on my home computer without any problems.

This morning I got a notification from my hosting provider that they had to reboot my server due to a physical problem on the node. Could this be related?

Can you confirm that the files either work or not for you?

It looks like it is related to the hosting problems. I tried to recover the files, but I'm unable to do so on the server. I will use the files on my home computer to fix this.

Hi niels,
I see one of my files is in there.
I re booted my computer with Ctrl +F5 asa you instructed and all is well now.when I am home on the weekend I will replace that file (pic) with a new pic.

Thank you for your help. I am very happy to be back on the forum. :cheers: :drink: :lol:
