can't find my most recent house design file

Recommended Posts

I have the home designer 2016. I have been working on a house design for weeks now and last night I had to shut my computer without being able to save the file I was working on.  Normally, when I open house design it asks me if I want to use the auto save feature, I say yes and then it opens to the file I closed out on the night before.   However, this morning when i turned the computer back on, it didn't prompt me for the autosave and the file I was working on yesterday is no where to be found....only much older versions of the same house design.  Any suggestions on where I might find my current file?

probably best to contact CA's technical support

 

also this forum is for users of Chief Premier

 

while HD PRO users can find some benefit following this forum

 

the other HD products are better served at the Hometalk forum

If it installs like Chief does, then look in your archives folder and select most recently modified.

I have another question, if you have a moment....I saved one of my house designs as a pdf file onto my desktop.  I can no longer find that file in my archive and need to download it back into Home Designer Suite so I can work on it.  Do you have any idea how I can do that?  thanks!

using file explorer enter *.pdf in the search box

 

do this for each drive on your system

 

this will find any/all PDF's

 

if you know the file name or a portion enter that much

instead of the *
