corupt pdf files

We have a Novell NSS clustered volume with NW6.5 sp3, with nw65os3a, and
n65nss3a patches installed.

I have now had two PDF files with very long file names in the 6O charters
or more that could not be opened with Windows explorer or NetStorage. If
you accesses the file from Windows Explorer would crash, and you can not
delete the file with Windows or NetStorage. I was able to see the file
and rename and delete with Novell Remote manager.

Anyone have any ideas on how I can have these files not be corrupted?

Re: corupt pdf files

If they are already corrupt there is no way of uncorrupting them, you'll
need to restore from tape. To stop it happening again apply nw65sp4a,
probably nss /poolrebuild would be adviseable - make sure you have
tested backups first just in case.
