Win 10, Fin 2012

  This is a new one on a file I've saved dozens of time before without incident:  "Cannot set position in file C:\Users...  .mus  An attempt was made to move the file pointer before the beginning of the file."

 

  So, the Pointer Sisters must be at it again (I love public wi-fi).  Anybody seen this one before?  Any fixes/workarounds?

 

Thanks,

Jon

Don’t know if it would make any difference, but have you tried opening it both from the folder where it is, as well as from within Finale. You could also export it as XML, and import it. You would lose some formatting, but it may save the file.

Thanks, Mike,

 

  I don't know if that would work, but I'll give it a try.

 

  I'm having a similar issue on a different file:

Any ideas?

Do you have a backup or temp file that you can try?

No external drives.  Saved some to the cloud, but they were all older versions.  This has been happening a lot.  Somebody's out there moving pointers?  Huh?
