    Security through obscurity is darker than obscurity,
    there stand equally hidden trapdoors and firewalls,
    there is the kingdom of false security.

→ Bill: concerning the comment of Tom, could you check on the original document that Pages version 4 is able to open it correctly?

OK. Could you check if iCloud sharing was turned on at some time in the past on the involved documents?

comment How would a Pages document end up as a series of embedded PDFs?
I read and understood this point. Nonetheless, if you want to solve your problem, please read my previous question. To want to share a document doesn't imply in any way that it is on iCloud. For example, you might want to share a document on one Mac between user Alice and Bob. I fixed my answer so as to avoid this confusion.

comment Readable iPhoto library archive
→ George: thank you for your attempt to improve my OQ. For your information, my use of code formatting wasn't confused with emphasis. I use it to mark code or reserved words of a language. For example I would write photo or photo but iPhoto because this is a reserved word. This could be of the utmost importance with words like Pages which can't be a ®.

Did you check the Share Settings (on the originating Mac i.e. the Mac of your grandfather)? Please include this information in the initial question (and not within comments: which are destined to disappear).

comment How to get max speed as FTP server?
→ Ze'ev: From the analysis "AFP and SMB also give poor performance", you have either a generic OS X problem or a generic network problem. To check your network, what is the performance of an scp of a 1 Gbyte file between 2 ports of your switch within the same network?

comment DNS not resolving on my mac
There is something contradictory within this question. If Email works fine, then the DNS works fine. If the web isn't reachable, then the problem stands somewhere else. Maybe around a proxy setting. If user61392 doesn't provide any more details, this question won't receive any correct answer.
