File gets corrupted on Save

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I am encountering a strange problem of late. Every time I attempt to save a new image file or save an existing file replacing an old saved state to the new save, the file gets corrupted and can longer be opened. It gives me an error code 43. There is a problem with the PDF files as well. When attempting to save a new PDF from Adobe Illustrator, the PDF just don’t show up in the initial save. It seems to like a lengthier route and if I try to switch out of this folder where PDF is supposed to be saved and then switch back again, this file will work without any issues. I tried this out on the image file and it works on this as well. So what is wrong with the initial attempt to save? Does anyone have any ideas? I am using Mac OS 10.8.5. Thank you for all the tips offered to fix this problem.

The application can’t be found.

The operation can’t be completed. An unexpected error occurred (error code -43).

File gets corrupted on Save


It’s not clear here as to what particular application is affected by the problem. Though you are mentioning about the PDF file, I’m not sure if it’s with the Adobe Reader or with Adobe Illustrator. If the file always gets corrupted every time you do a save then your program might not be installed properly. Try reinstalling the application where the file gets corrupted every time you save a file.

If the problem is with Adobe Reader, just visit Adobe’s official home page and download the latest version of Adobe Reader since it’s free. If the problem is with Adobe Illustrator, try to uninstall it, restart your computer, and then install it back. Then check if you still receive file corruption after the saving.

If nothing has changed and it’s the PDF files you are concerned, try using a different program to handle PDF files like Foxit Reader. Actually, I am using Adobe Reader X before with my PDF files but stopped and uninstalled it from my computer after learning about Foxit Reader. Adobe Reader X is fine but is limited only to opening PDF files and cannot instantly create a new PDF file.

You can only create a PDF file after subscribing and paying. It’s different with Foxit Reader, creating a new PDF file is totally free and it’s much faster in performance on slow computers unlike with Adobe Reader X. Visit Foxit Reader 6 – The Best PDF Reader to try it.
