Solidworks crashes... alot.
Especially when working with Routing and Large Assemblies, or having more than 6 drawings open at a time...
But every time it crashes, it will generate "AutoRecover" files that are available when starting again. I'm sure you've all seen these before.
Every time I try to use one of these AutoRecovers, everything seems to be wrong. References don't work, mates disappear or break that were previously fine.
Then, after editing for a while, I want to save the AutoRecover and one of 3 things occurs:
- Everything is fine, it prompts me to say "You will overwrite the original, are you sure?"
- It will throw me to the "C:\...\AutoRecover\" folder instead of my "L:\Project\...\models go here" where the original was from.
- It will "Failed to save document" and just refuse to let me save it. Whether it is overwriting the original, a new name, a different folder... Any work I have done simply will not let me save the file. I have to close out of SW entirely so I can go back to the "unsaved original"
I have resorted to "Just remember to save often, and DON'T EVER CONSIDER USING AUTORECOVER"
Is this typical of everyone else's experience with this?
