Warning: Autosave has screwed me in the past!
An update must have caused this, but im not sure: I was using Autosave to backup my projs, and it appeared to be working fine . Then, one day Cubase crashed after 5-7 hours of GOOD and THOROUGH work!! I thought to myself, "WOAH!, thank goodness I have Autosave on and saving every 5 minutes… " BUT , to my dismay , there were NO .bak files in the project folder!!! I quickly jump into Cubase preferences to see it is def enabled!
Im like "!?WTF?! " at this point! So, I DISABLED it and then RE-ENABLE it, and a .bak appeared in the damn folder…yeah, too late for that now!
Since then, MANUAL saves every few decent edits! Phuck that unreliable “Auto” shyte! GRRRR
I was SOOO happy with the results I had before it crashed too. It REALLY devastated me, and not to mention set me back a full days work. I wasnt able to replicate the work I did the first time either. That still urks me till this day!
