Working on a mix session here for the past 2 hours and Nuendo crashed. On restart there was no .bak file of a recent autosave. Autosave is set on my system for every 5 minutes. I’m back to where I started
This most likely means that Nuendo has already “crashed” silently, i.e. certain parts weren’t working properly any longer, but the remaining tasks were still alive. Happens every now and then, although I have seen this issue more frequently in the earlier days of this app.
Workaround: Save manually more often - ideally using Nuendo’s “incremental save”, to avoid data errors destroying a single version of your project.
I have described my paranoia on this subject elsewhere:
Sometimes Nuendo crashes and then saves a 0 KB file. (Never understood why this still works then. ) Have Nuendo set to create multiple back-up (.bak) files in every case. (I set the value to 20. Then I can be sure not to lose the whole project.)
