Reason/Issue McKesson has identified a rare software issue when two or more processes attempt to modify the same image folder within fractions of a second, the write lock mechanism may fail to prevent concurrent modification of the same data. This may result in loss of data within the image folder. As both simultaneous write access and lock mechanism failures are rare, the likelihood of experiencing this problem is very low.
