    This is strange and in the 15 years since owning this device I have never seen this happen.
    This week I have used the machine twice and on both cuts it screwed up.
    So imagine the machine cuts one job on one day and then may sit for days until the next job.
    I print the graphics and then when I send them out to cut, it started cutting the job that was cut already 2 or 3 days ago. It has caught me twice off gurad and ruined 2 jobs.
    I cant figure out how it is retaining the cut file from previous days considering everything is shut down...and why now after all these years?

    Did you check the plot manager to see what's in queue before/during sending the job?

    The print / cut job queue ( most likely c:\QUEUE) should be cleaned ou except for gsp.net which is write protected. If you allowed the job to totally complete it should have been deletec from the QUEUE. If jobs are left in the QUEUE and you start GQMgr(or it's started by GspPlot) those jobs will get "picked up" and output again.

    c:/queue and see if theres anything else in there but gsp.net

    I find this happens when I have to 'end task' on gqmgr...when it starts back up the old job is there sometimes duplicated
