AutoCAD Plolt setyup changes overnight????

Am I going crazy or is there something going on at
night on my
computer?

I work at a large airport. The computers are on a
network.

my AutoCAD R14 and R2000 were both installed from the
network onto
my C drive. All of AutoCAD is on my C drive.

I have setup a pcp file to plot on a HP 8500c to be 11
x 17 and black and white.

One day it works fine......next day ...same drawing and
it does not work at all.

I end up having to recreate everything to get back to
the day before.

This happens irregularly, but has happened more than 5
times in last several months.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Clarify for me, Jack: are you saying that the .pcp file doesn't work the
next day, or that the .dwg file is corrupted? It sounds like you're
having to recreate the .pcp file ... if that's the case, maybe a copy on
a diskette ...?

I have no idea what is going on.

One day I can print and everything is great......say it
is set up for landscape, 11 x 17 and black and
white....

next day I go to plot and have to go back to square one
and import my pcp file again, change printers, make it
landscape...

No end of the world problem, but makes me feel like I
am going crazy when it happens......
