when we save a dwg and open it the next day we find that it is corrupt
to the point that it can not be recovered. We are saving to a network
but all programs are run local. I think its a protocal problem w/network
but can not solve problem.

Monte,
The first step in a situation like this is to obtain the latest drivers for your network adapters on your server and workstations. Next,
blow away the protocol definitions on each system, apply the new NIC driver then rebuild the protocol(s). If running multiple protocols,
make sure everyone is set up with the same primary protocol and that it agrees with the server primary protocol.

It's not necessarily a network problem.

We received for repair plenty of drawings corrupted this way from clients
who worked on a standalone workstation, local copy of a drawing. Some bugs
simply don't manifest themselves while you are in a drawing, they are only
detected and crash, when the drawing is being loaded into AutoCAD drawing
editor.

So, you might be saving the bug to both DWG and BAK file for the whole day,
not knowing about it. You find out there is a bug next time you try to open
the file (both DWG and BAK file are corrupted)

We've been having a similar problem. When opening a drawing we get the
error "Unhandled Access Violation Exception @ 418500h". We can recover and
audit the drawing, then use DDINSERT to bring the drawing back, but it must
be exploded and we lose all the paperspace settings. The other change we
made was to change the "Isavepercent" variable from "50" to "0". The
instances of corrupt drawings have decreased. We run AutoCAD 14 on Win98
PCs and save the files on a Novell Netware 5 server.
