    new functionality ? Autorecover auto switch off

    Peter De Vlieger

      Did I miss something?

      Was it just added with SP3?

      Or is this just something for 2017 in general?

       

      I always have autorecover as well as Backup active.Always. It's standard in my settings.

      So today I had the honor of having SW crashing just after me asking to do a save.

      And you guessed it. 'Auto-recover' had been switched off.

      Not only that even the 'Save notification' had been switched off.

       

      Proof that it got switched off behind the scenes?

      I have autorecovery information until 13.55 today. After that nothing. What happened at 13.55?

      Nothing.

       

      A couple of hours earlier I did have Solidworks crash on me.

      It crashed because I had dared to delete more then 1 mate in an routing assembly at the same time, which is stupid of me. I should have known better because that is a no-no since 2016, sometimes, not all the time, just some of the time.

      Why did I delete mates? Because a model that was without an error on Friday became overdefined on Monday without anything that could influence it being altered between then and now. So trying to hunt down what the mysterious overdefining mate was caused it to crash.

       

      So now, a good hours work gone and that's not counting the hunt for the sudden overdefined mate, the resulting crash and such.

      The work in question, detailing 4 views on a GA assembly drawing. Which I had finished, dimensions and all.

       

      To whom do I send the bill or does the company get a discount on the next version?

       

      In short.......1 & 2, one and two, ONE and TWO.
