    I have several customers with this problem.
    Files created, or saved, using a a VB 6 program are being deleted.
    The things they have in common are:
    Netware 5.1 server,
    Windows XP, SP2 workstation.
    User has all rights except Supervisor and Access.
    If the program and/or the data is located on the server, files saved by the programs disappear. New files don't get saved and existing files disappear when saving. The files involved are comma delimited text files.

    Have tried latest version of MS and Novell clients.
    Also logged in as Supervisor.
    Win 98 workstation works ok.
    If the program and data are moved to the local drive files save normally.

    I am suspecting XP, service pack 2 because the problem showed up recently and other O/S's seem to be ok.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I would assume as long as you have not purged the volume that you can still salvage the files if they were originally saved to the server. We started using SP2 last month and have not seen any issues like this. But we are using Netware 6.

    They may be able to salvage individual files that way or restoring from a backup but I still need to find a solution to the ongoing problem.

    I have set up a test network but can not duplicate the problem.

    Have also tried on the customer machine disabling all startup applications.

    Fortunately not too many people using this configuration.

    Thanks for the reply,
    Roger
