end of file error -39, via server
- An old problem with a new twist.
We are running 3.5e, suitably current, using Classic in 10.4.11 PPC.
When using common documents, we work from one on a file server, then
Save or Save As, as required. One such document is a list of service
providers and contact information. All Privileges are set for all to
Read and Write. Just one of our Macs refuses to save any changes made
from there, retorting "end of file error -39" to a Save or Save As
command. None of the other Macs have that problem with that document.
Until now, I thought that error was in the document itself but that
cannot be the case here. We have Rebuilt Classic, run Preferential
Treatment, Repaired Disk Permissions and re-started.

to other server documents?
IAC, deleting the Prefs file on that machine would be a good start.
- This is just a random guess, but you might try copying the file from
the server to the local hard drive of the Mac that cannot save it.
Then save changes to that file and copy it back to the server. Or
better yet, copy the entire contents of the document to the clipboard
and paste it into a new document on the local hard drive, then copy
it to the server.
