Random Save Error

Recommended Posts

I've used Paint.net nearly every day for quite a while, with no problems whatsoever...a happy camper. Then, 4 days ago, I began to encounter a "save error" when trying to save files; it only happens occasionally, with no discernible pattern.

When it happens, I get the "Save Configuration" box, which, at the top, says, "Preview, file size (error)

And, I get a smaller box with "There was an error while saving the file"

The night before, I'd been using Paint.net just before going to bed, so, this error quite literally popped up overnight. I was using the latest version; I saw a similar problem posted in this forum with the suggestion that the OP there try installing the Beta version, so, I've also tried that, with the same results.

I'm only doing very basic touch-up work on these images...no layering, no added text or anything else...my version of Windows 7 Home Premium is up-to-date...and, I should also mention that my other graphics-editor, Irfan-View, modifies and saves these images with no problem...

Here's the "Details"

Does this happen when saving any image? For instance, what happens if you start up Paint.NET and try to save the default/blank image?


If that works, then maybe something's "bad" * in one of the images you're working on. If that's the case then it would help if you send me one of the images (just reply here and attach the image).


* ("Bad" in the sense that Windows doesn't like it... not your fault!)
