appleworks error -1700

i find that when i open backed up copies of apple work documents, i frequently, but not always get, 'an unexpected error occured -1700" . i am unable to open the document. the 'original' copy on my usual harddisk works fine. any idea why, and do i need to change something on the backup disk?. i am using 'backup all files'

tks again

Does this happen when you boot from the backup (named the same as the source), nals, or when you try to open it directly?

i have only noticed in when i am booted from the 'normal' boot drive and am checking on how the backup has preformed. so i am opening the backed up dox, while booted from the 'normal drive'. i do also open the application itself from the backed up drive. fwiw it seems to happen when i have used appleworks on the normal drive and thereafter go to check the backedup dox

hope that answers

tks

What happens if you copy the file that fails back to the original drive (in a different location) and open it there? Or, if you boot from the backup and try one of the "bad" files?

OK, nals. But it sounds to me like the files have been copied just fine...

ok, tried same thing today.

made some changes to applework dox. thereafter tried to open the old version on the backup drive. got the appleworks -1700 error msg.

did what you suggested. copied the dox to an external drive and tried opening them. no problem, cud open

tried booting up from the backup drive and opening them, again worked fine.

so i guess is an appleworks issue, gets confused opening different versions of the same file name at times ?

i did the same trial with an ms word dox, no problems with that one

Yeah, it sounds like AppleWorks is having some trouble with the file when it's on something other than the boot volume, etc. Since copying it back (restoring it) works, and booting from the backup works, I wouldn't worry about it... the file seems to be just fine.
