Checkmate reports defective files 24 Feb 2014 13:18 #5233

Every now and then, Checkmate starts to complain about specific files on my internal Apple SSD, and reports them defective on every single run until I delete them. Strange thing is, these are ALWAYS XML files, which are from their content totally fine and can be read by any program without errors.

Any ideas why this comes up as "defective"? When I remove them, next run is fine, but after some weeks some new files are chosen to be defective....

Thanks for your report.

The file is not meeting some strict definition of what an xlm file should contain. Sometimes, programs generate xlm files that have some oddity that causes the File Structures test to flag them. Just in case there is something we should be aware of in these files, I would appreciate it if you would send a sample file to This email address is being protected from spambots.
