recover lost work

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

so there I was... working hard for at least a couple of hours and then... Chief Architect X8 Premier crashed.

thought there would have at least been an auto save.  one time I was very tired and messed up the saving but later found
what I wanted in cache.  cant seem to find anything tonight.  any chance my work is still around?  someplace? anyplace?

my fault.. shoulda saved the work.

 

thank you

Tom

Check your X8 data folder>Archives and find the folder for the file you were working on.  You might have an auto saved backup in there (depending on your backup settings).

thank you.... there are a few places where chief stores data.  any idea what the files extension would be?

If you didn't mess with it, it should be a folder titled Chief Architect Premier X8 Data>Archives>plan name_xxxxxxx

 

Look inside that folder for any available backups to the plan.

Sorry but if you don't save the file with a name there is no archive created.
