File retrieval issues...help!!

Recommended Posts

Hi All, i did some work on a plan and now i cant find the work i did on it.

I have looked at auto archives, not there, searched my drive for other plans, looked in other

locations and still cant find changes.

I have autosave set for every 5 mins.

 

Is there anything else i can do?

Sometimes I save a plan to a different file mistakenly of course, try searching other files on your computer. I have done it several times

I usually just reopen current plans from Startup Options or the Open Recent Files list and if there is a more recent auto save then Chief will usually ask if you would prefer to use it.

I tried opening from startup and no go.

i can’t believe I have lost the work.

with auto save on how could I?

very frustrated.

If I saved over it can I undo?

seems undo only works for active session.

David:

 

contact CA's tech support on Monday to see if they can help

 

as a 30 yr former programmer I learned to do my own save as along with any auto-archiving

 

when in heavy design mode I may do save as every 5 minutes - certainly as I finish each task

especially those I don't want to  do over
