    Default Please Help!!"A File I/O Error Has Occurred" every time I try tosave...

    I'm working on a postcard design for print purposes with several embedded images and text elements. I've saved successfully several times early on, but suddenly, every time I attempt to save, I get the message "A File I/O Error Has Occurred". I need to get this to the printer, but can't make important changes now. HELP!

    Thanks,
    paul

    Are you saving to a Server?

    Save locally if you are.

    Crazy! Wasn't saving to a server, but to a 2-gig jump drive. When I saved it to my mac's hard drive, no problem. Is there a short answer to why that happens? I didn't appear to be out of space on the external drive...

    Thanks Scott!

    Check the Trash on the jump drive. It may need to be emptied.

    I can't say specifically, the File I/O error clearly indicates that Illustrator can't write to wherever you are asking it to write to. Could be a server without proper permissions, a jump drive formatted as NTFS, a Diskette that's full or locked, etc.
