Hi, so I was working on a project today, editing some strings, Cubase crashed (for a change…) so I restarted assuming I’d be able to open a back-up file (my settings are set to save every 15 minutes - I checked my preferences to confirm this…) only to find there were no back-ups in my folder (always are directed to my project folder).
So I got over that and entered into the original saved project again, after half hour or so, I checked my project folder and saw that there were a couple of new back-up files - since the restart, “great” I thought, checked again an hour later…there were 5/6 back-ups in there… now they have disappeared from my project folder. I lost more work the first time, than the second, as I just left it open whilst doing other stuff the second time, but I know the BUs were there… and now are not.
Can anyone help as to why this could be…maybe I can retrieve my initial work from the first session, and more importantly, stop it happening again??
Help appreciated. I’m not a newbie - though not fully pro - been saving stuff/using back-ups for years…HELP!!!
Edit. Did a couple of trial and error experiments, if I got some back-ups and saved the projects, the back-ups before then would save, but if I closed a project after a back-up had appeared and didn’t save, that back-up disappeared… which makes having back-ups pointless, right? I’m guess I have hit a setting, help very much appreciated…
