Don’t let your Flash files get corrupted

Posted in Flash at 12:04 am by Curtis J. Morley

Today on slashdot an article that all of us Flashers, Photogs, and Designers should be aware of. One of the recent updates from Microsoft will corrupt files that are in the .swf and .jpg format.

Slashdot says, "If you have compression activated on any folder, then the compressed data is at risk from corruption."

Microsoft has been alerted that "KB920958 causes data loss on compressed folders in Windows Update"

The files that are at risk are reported to be:
.JPG
.GIF
.SWF

Good luck and make sure to turn off compression.
