I've been having problems with stability in an ASM lately and I've been lucky enough that this hasn't happened to me just yet! Auto-recover keeps saving my butt all day long. If you file a SR, I'll make sure to upvote the SPR generated from it!
Cheers Gian but seeing as that I can't reproduce it there's not much sense in me filing an SR.
Appreciate the sentiment.
But Peter De Vlieger, they are saving you from a potential problem. On my thread about good files randomly becoming corrupt and unable to save there is a link to a resolved SPR. Guess what the solution is? Turn off Auto Recover. What a solution.
ONE & TWO!
What a choice, eh?
I admit I had to laugh when I read that.
Either it crashes and you end up having to redo stuff because no autorecover or it gets corrupt for no apparent reason where you can only hope that the autorecover version didn't get corrupted.
In acad there was a possibility that due to a certain sequence of events that the autosave time got altered (max. 600 minutes) or even switched off. Had it happen to me once and was not amused.
There even exists a LIPS routine that runs in the background that keeps track of that setting and warns the user when anything chances to it.
It saved me a few times during the years.
Makes me wonder if one of the resident macro Guru's could write something, even if it just checked the autorecover setting on start of a session.
Autorecover is a mess, backup is a mess, deleting features is a mess.
It's been this way for 15 years. I know Dassault is good at raising their prices, they've proven that, but do they have any software capabilities?
