    Filemaker seizes after inserting file into container



      Filemaker seizes after inserting file into container

      Description of the issue

      Often a Hard disk must spin up before a file located on it becomes available to be read by a program.  This delay can take about 1-5 seconds. BUG: When we upload a txt file to a container field in Filemaker, if Filemaker must wait for the hard disk to spin up, it seizes.   Filemaker must then be force-quit, and we must then wait 2-3 minutes for the Filemaker server to allow us back in, or else it says we are in "license conflict" with ourself. Intel Core Duo, Mac OS 10.5.7.  Filemaker Pro 9.0.3.

          Thank you for your post.


          Unfortunately, I'm unable to duplicate the problem.  This is what I have done.


          I have files hosted on both a Mac and Windows servers, running FileMaker Server 10 on both platforms.


          I launched FileMaker Pro 9.0v3 on Mac OS 10.5.7, accessed database files on both servers that contain tables with Container fields.  I waited a few minutes, put my cursor in a Container field and selected "Insert -> Picture".  After the drive began spinning, I was prompted for the file name and I could insert the file without any problem.


          Are you using FileMaker Server 9?  10?  Previous version?


          Have you tried it with FileMaker Pro 10?


          Any additional information that I can try here to duplicate the issue would be helpful.
