autosave? location

Recommended Posts

Hey all, my computer was acting a little strange Friday (not specifically in chief).  I worked on a file, got the layout to where I wanted, saved, released the license and closed.  This evening, I attempted to open and it is a pretty old version of the file I was working on.  Not a ton of work but a couple hours at least.  Is there autosave data located somewhere that would be writing a duplicate file similar to how autocad works? 

 

As an FYI, when I remoted into the computer tonight, reactivated license and opened the file it still was only the early on work.  But, it wouldn't let me view 3-D, gave the serious error message.  I'll restart that computer in the morning, but hoping I might be able to recover the file from a different location.  I do have a server that backs up, but its a nightly thing, so would not have anything more than what my computer thinks it has.

Have a look in the help file for Auto Archive and Auto Save Files.

To find the location of your Archives Folder go Preferences>General>Folders>All Program Paths>Show>Archives Folder

Thank you Glenn.  I was unaware of that feature/location, it did have an archive from several hours after my apparent save.

Dermot, thank you for the reply.  I think the reason I was unable to find that KB article is my search terms all revolved around autosave rather than archive (both general internet and CA forum search).  Just never occurred to me to use a different term.
