Ok, I'm calm again.

My results are slightly different. I have files every once in awhile
either just go away or reduce to 2-3 k and crash Frame when I try to
open the file. I'm driving my network backup department crazy asking
for files pulled from the backup tapes.

I thnk I may be on the trail, though.

First, we name our files Chapt1, Chapt2 ...Chapt10, Chapt11, etc.
Second, up till yesterday, I had automatic backup every 5 minutes
enabled. (That got shut off last night)
Third, we do ALOT of cross referencing between chapters, so sometimes I
will open and minimize all the chapters of the book

Now, if I have a Frame crash, it will create a file for Chapt1 called
Chapt1@ and a file for Chapt11 Chapt1 -at- -dot-

See the trend?

In all honesty, I don't think the network has anything to do with it.

It's NEVER the network, huh?
