Corrupt Images Galore. . .

edited November -1 in Working with GS (Mac)
I opened my project today to find that many of my images, those that comprise an animation in particular, have been corrupted. They no longer appear in my GS creator image browser and look like they have been mangled on the disk. Has anyone seen this behavior before? It seems to happen in the background as my project has been sitting on this running imac for days. luckily I have backups. When I left it a few days ago they were fine. Below is the output from a UNIX file command:

Normal file command output: =================================

  • I noticed that the screenshots for scenes are usually the first ones hit by this:
