Truncated end to file when opened after saving

I am on a network system with two other users with Check Out/In. They use NT2000, I'm using XP Professional. (I've just switched from NT2000 to XP). All our files include online documentation contained in a series of tables. Since switching to XP, on a random basis (approximately, 1 in 4 times), the end of a new file or undated file becomes truncated just before the end of a table row (this could be any row down - normally the last row). This is only discovered when another user opens the file in Dreamweaver or IE explorer - it never shows on my machine if I do a check on IE explorer before saving and checking in. Always following after the table is a comment box (for our internal use on version update number, etc), followed by date. Our setup procedures are exactly the same, and it only happens when I save or update files, never when they do it (nor did it do it when I was on NT2000). When we look at the code there is always a missing closing table tag.
Help. Do not know what to do next?

I would guess your problems are because of DW bugs.

On page http://www.macromedia.com/support/dreamweaver/releasenotes/mx/dwmx61_fixed.html
you can read:
"There are intermittent occurrences of files being truncated or losing data when using Get/Put. (76640)
This occurs under certain circumstances if the "Refresh local file list automatically" is unchecked and the Site window has not been refreshed before putting a big file."

On the other hand, the list of Issues resolved with DW 7.01 at
http://www.macromedia.com/support/dreamweaver/ts/documents/dw701_resolved_detail.htm
is not much shorter...


My only good solution is - update & update & update.
As obvious, DW (like most software programs) is far from perfect. But do not despair - keep smiling - since at least - it's never boring!

With a smile
