[OFF] does anyone know of a virus that.....

Hi all,

...strips the resource forks of any files copied off the hdd?

I have a client who is having problems with one of my applications,
specifically the application saves a text file to the hdd, and stores
various info in the files resource fork, another application then saves it
internally.

What is happening is that the resource fork is being stripped at some point,
and when my application re-opens the file everything is falling apart.

This was working perfectly, then he had some troubles and reformatted the
hdd, now we are seeing this problem.

Also, any files that he sends me, of any kind, have no resources at all.
(even if they were stuffed beforehand).

I am at a loss as to what the problem could be, any ideas would be much
appreciated.

Yours cheerfully,

Andrew Bush

Could it be that your client is moving the file off to a non Mac volume?

good thought, but no. He's using a G3 which connects directly to the
internet.

Only time I've seen this is when you move files off a Mac onto something
like a Unix, Novell or NT that is only running FTP and not native services
for macintosh and so the file system does not handle dual forked files.
