Hello!

I have a student version of chief architect x12. a windows 10 pro desktop

I haven't been able to open my layout file. Neither the last backup. this is the information I get when I try to open it. I hope someone can help me to figure out what to do. I have lots of information there.

 

Thank you so much 363403706_Screenshot(404).thumb.png.a16bbfc5a0818c830d57969f2925ac57.png

My full version of X12 has just done the same thing. My plan & layout file & backups are corrupt!

Brand new computer running Windows 10, RTX3070, core i9 etc.

Just lost weeks of a client's work

You don't loose your drawing, CA makes a backup in the temp file.

Yes, I know.... those are corrupt as well. Looks like it's because our office saves everyone's files & archives to a cloud server.

best to save to local hard drive first - then save to cloud server

 

do "save as" often

when working I often do "save as" every 5 minutes

certainly after finishing a task I don't want to repeat

 

I don't rely of Chief's auto-saves

prefer to do my own
