    .. over the last several days. I have tried uploading a file I've previously successfully uploaded just to see if the problem was on my end.. and that one didn';t upload either.

    Any suggestions or thoughts why all of the sudden I am unable to upload graphics from disk?

    TIA

    I seem to recall that we have limits on PMs, then you have to delete some. Maybe clear out some of your attachments OV and see if that works.

    Bro, i get this error all the time myself, it usually results from a corrupt file or it has a format that the server does not completely understand. What i do in those cases is open the file in Gimp and export it as a new file, this clears it up every single time.

    Also, a file name that is too long will be rejected.

    Hey guys thanks for your inputs.

    (As usual for me) this turned out to be "user error." I never realized I hadn't logged off the firefox proxy I was using elsewhere which automatically logs me off dawg - at least as far as attachments are concerned. All's well again :up:
