Re: Could not save work, files lost

I did the chkdsk c: /f, nothing amiss.

I also used the built-in Win 10 utility Windows Memory Diagnostic, no issues.

Re: Could not save work, files lost

Yet one more. Regarding info from TheMarkster: I found the FreeCAD recovery file in the Appdata Local Temp directory for a currently open FreeCAD file. It had a different name from my original file, but I was able to open that file with FreeCAD. I closed it, and I still had my original file open in ...

Re: Could not save work, files lost

Yet more to messages above. I did some additional experimenting. If I open a previously saved file for additional work, I can save it in the original location without failure. Then I got failure messages in a few situations: 1. If I go to the saved directory and do a right click copy and then right ...

Re: Could not save work, files lost

Thanks for your replies. My backup settings are at 1, and autorecovery saves at 15 minutes. I have not changed them. I have always maintained a "save often" routine, and never before had this occur. (since version 0.15) I found the backup file in the same directory as the originally saved file. I re...

Could not save work, files lost

Is there a temp file from which I could recover about 3 hours worth of work? I was presented with a message that declared I could not save my work for some reason. I tried several ways to save and got the same message. I closed the app, and when I reopened it, my file is not listed on the recent fil...

Re: Automatic update of a part when another part changes

I have tried additional experiments with Expressions ( but not yet with the 'App::PropertyLink' method). I have got everything to work for me when I use my script (below) to create only one carcass with 2 doors. I can move the carcass anywhere and turn it around the z axis to any angle and the doors...
