Autosave not working

Recommended Posts

My file crashed so I went to retrieve a backup and found VW hadn't backed up anything for the last hour.  There is nothing wrong with my autosave preferences.




So a bit frustrated that I just lost an hours work but more importantly why did this happen and what can I do to avoid it happening again?


Any ideas?

@Boh I've had this happen on occasion, don't know why.  I do enable "confirm before save" because it reminds me that it is working and didn't get turned off accidentally.

Yes, you have to approve a dialog box every 20 operations (in your case and mine), but it is better than losing data IMHO.

Thanks for the advice @jeff prince. I’d rather find a cause and hopefully not have to confirm autosaves each time.


Im a long time vw user and this is the first time this has ever happened.


I did notice the file was generally laggy esp going in and out of viewports in that last lost hour. I prob shld have noticed something was up and did a restart.
