Re: Autosave

Is it just me or does autosave not work? It keeps setting itself back
to 120 minutes. What about saving a file to recover when crashing? Why
does it bother when the file it creates is invalid? As good as AutoCAD
is, it's still unsatisfactory in some departments.

Hi,
Can anyone tell me why i cant get autosave to work in Acad2002 i have it
set to save at 10 minute intervals onto my 'C' drive in a specially named
folder. I am working over a peer to peer network where the dwgs we work off
are on a fileserver. Please help.

If you do a qsave every nine minutes, it will reset the autosave clock and
it will never create the autosave. Could that possibly be what is
happening?

A few things:

Set ISAVEPERCENT to 0
Set ISAVEBAK to 1
Do not rely on Autosave.... the BAK file is a copy of your DWG up to the
point of your previous QSAVE
QSAVE often
Have a back-up copy of any data of value

Autosave does not update the Bak file. I creates a saved file that is closed
when you exit the drawing normally.
If you crash, then the autosave file is there current to the last point of
the Autosave.

Do a manual qsave every chance you get.

set isavepercent to 0 so you create a full back up and not just
partial....this is with every qsave....


the autosaves are deleted when you exit cad unless exitted abnormally
