Hi

I've lost a weeks work due to a file that didn't save. I cannot locate an imdl file or a temporary version. Is there any way of retrieving the file? The unsaved file is not corrupt but the unsaved work is lost.

 

Any help would be gratefully recieved.

By "the unsaved file," I think you mean the file that you saved, but doesn't have updates you made after opening it, but before it was saved again. Is that correct? If so, I don't think so, but it illustrates the importance of making backups, preferably not on the same drive as the original. If you are working on it for weeks, daily incremental backups can help with this, or if your client wants you to go back to what you showed them last week.
