I have experience similar problems with older versions of Illustrator on
It turned out that the novel Network was interfering with the programs
ability to make Temp files, (at least that's what I was told).
it might be worth looking into having no network, saving to the hard
drive and then logging in to the network to back up the work.
although it was also re-naming files as well.

Hi Claire, not sure if this is relevant to your problem. It could be a

network-setting-priviliges thing. Have you spoken to your technicians?
At our school, when you save a file from within an application to
network location (Windows network and operating system), you get a file
but 0kb file size.. Students can save into their own u:\ drive location
problem, but to submit work for assessment to our 'Student Assessment'

folder which is on a dedicated network drive, they have to copy the
using windows explorer - helps with file management skills too! The
problem is most likely some other network activity or something in the

students actionscript, as Paul suggested.
