      Summary

      Pictures attempted to be copied into an existing file in FileMaker Pro 8 leaves only a white sqauare

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      8

      Operating system version

      Windows XP

      Description of the issue

      I have been working with my FileMaker pro ver. 8 for some years and made a database with alot of photos copied in. The database holds 1000 entries and takes up 800 MB.
      It has always worked perfectly well.
      But now when I try to copy-paste a picture into a new entry it just leaves a white square where the photo was supposed to be inserted.
      Other possible explanations ?

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      I have tried to copy in an old photo from an existing entry so that I knew for certain that it was not the photo file format that was incompatible. but the result ws the same : Just a white square and no photo. What is wrong ?
      Is the file of 800 MB exceeding the max size for a single file ?

      Expected result

      I thoght it would work.

      Actual result

      But it didn't.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      None. Just the white square where the photo was supposed to be inserted.
