'false file damaged' report


FileMaker Server



Operating system version

osx 10.7.3

Description of the issue

I get damaged file emails sent by server when swapping over versions of a file

Steps to reproduce the problem

Sometimes I want to role back a file to a backup. When I do this I do the following:

Close the file on server

Tell server to remove the file

Copy the backup to my desktop (not sure I really need to do this)

Upload the copy into FMS12

When I do this

The file upload goes OK but the file is infact closed (does it remember this status from the 'close' above?)

AND (And this is the alarming thing)

The sever sends a an email out saying:

"FileMaker Server on reported the following event:

2012-05-25 09:50:05.730 or temporary file "filemac:/Raid Disk/Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Databases/STV/STV sales tool cloud.fmp12" is damaged and has been closed. (20401)"

I hope this is not true!

Expected result

No error email and the file to be open after uploading it
