User presented an issue with their E.02.02 GC/MS ChemStation showing two files after a sequence was run. They had their sequence data file (normal) and then a blank file that had the data file name ending in .X



This is due to the data file not writing completely. This could be due to various possibilities. Could be a corrupt method, corrupt ChemStation, having the software on the wrong operating system or not being logged in as the right user.



If sudden onset of problem and only with one method then most likely corrupt method and using the default.m method to recreate would be first option.
