Hi and thank you for your answer,

with coruppt I mean that there aren't any missing bytes. I saw some BMP 
files which look like you have taken the original photo-image (tho photo 
came out of an microscope. we are working with a lot of images of plants 
and genes) and cut it into litle peaces. Than you take this peaces and 
put them randomly together. I don't know  how to describe it better. My 
english is not that good. Other photos in the same folder are ok. And we 
got the problem on two different systems, using thair own storage 
device. I mean they don't share the same drive or something like this.
It doesn't matter if we copy the files from the server to a workstation 
and back or if we copie the files from a workstation to the server and back.
We don't compare the md5 checksumes. We cheked our switches to make 
shure there is nothing  wrong with our network installation. And there 
are no hardware errors because we are having the problem on two 
different machines.

I hope that information can help you.
