Question about Corel Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Saved work vanished.

Auto save feature switched on, plus I saved manually. I have the original work, but the upgraded version is gone. I printed the completed work successfully before shutting down the computer, but I return to it today and the hours of upgraded work is gone. I don't understand. Very new to this.

    I think there has been a misunderstanding in my use of the word "upgraded". I haven't "upgraded" the program, just the piece of work I was working on - ie - made improvements and changes to the piece. It was the improvements and changes that were gone (despite saving) when I opened up the file the next day. All I was left with was the original piece of work, minus the changes.

    Sorry if I didn't make my meaning more clear.

If this is a new up-grade of the program that an old file is being worked on with the upgraded program, look under TOOLS, OPTIONS, FILE LOCATIONS for a defaulted location that can be different from what you expected.

    Dear zulu42
    The answer may be in the same location. In the tab file locations is a selection "AutoRecover files" there may be a folder specified that the document is located. My set up is that the files would be located in thee normal location of the document so the up-date would be over_filed the oroginal document, but you could have a seperate folder that holds up-dates only if you forget to file-up over the original document. I wish I could be of more help but you can prevent future disappointments by setting up a folder to hold your auto matic Up-dates or set the frequency of the AutoRecovery to less time(Tools, Options, Save).
    Glad to be of Assistance
    Please rate the assistance even if not adaquate for your needs, I can learn from all comments.

I can't find my auto saved document

Step 1:
What sort of document IE: word , excell , office ......

Microsoft Word's AutoRecover feature periodically saves your document while you're working in it, even if you forget to save it manually. If you close the document accidentally, Word closes improperly or you unthinkingly write over a document or change something important, this function can save you from losing all your work. Although Word doesn't AutoSave constantly, it might have automatically saved your lost document more recently than you manually saved it. Word 2010 makes this rescue process even easier than earlier versions of Word; it stores all recently AutoSaved versions of your documents under the "File" tab.

Open the document for which you lost information. For example, perhaps you were working in a document that you had previously saved, but then Word closed and you lost your most recent work. Click the "File" tab. Click on the most recently AutoSaved version of the document under the Versions heading, next to the "Manage Versions" icon. An Untitled, Unsaved Document b> Open Microsoft Word. Even if you never saved the document, and you can't find the file on your computer because you never gave it a name, Word might have saved a version of it. Click the "File" tab. Click "Recent" on the left column of the File screen. Click the "Manage Versions" icon at the bottom of the middle column. On the drop-down menu, click "Recover Unsaved Documents." Word presents an Open dialog box, taking you directly to the Unsaved Files folder that Word automatically created. Click on the document that you want to open, then click "Open" at the bottom of the dialog box. Click the "Save As" button on the yellow bar that appears above the document, below the Ribbon; in the pop-up menu, give your document a name, choose its storage location on your computer and click "Save."

My xbox froze during play and I haven't saved it.. I don't mind taking a break I just want to be able to save it.. how can I unfreeze it?

You are in an unfortunate situation here. Once an xbox freezes, for what ever reason it may be, the only thing to do, it to reset it. Which means, you guessed it, you will not be able to save your game from this point. If the game has an auto save feature, then you wont be so far gone since you'll be bale to start from the last auto save, but other than that, you'll have to reset, and you wont be able to save!

I wrote the long message and wanted to send it later. Later I could not find my written mesage to send email. I did not find outbox nor Draft symbol in the screen. How should I get my written message back

It should have been auto saved in the drafts folder. If it is not in the drafts folder, It is most likely gone. Outlook uses word as an editor and word will auto save every so often. It will place an .asd file in your temp folder. Your temp folder location will depend on your Windows version. I'm not talking about windows/temp. It is most likely under Documents and Settings\(your user name)\Local Settings\temp. The Local Settings folder is hidden so you must set your settings so that you can view hidden files and folders.

I suggest either making sure you save your message to draft every so often as you write it .. OR a better solution is to use Word. Word will auto save every so often and the document can be recovered.

How auto save works

How to view your Local Settings files/folders

hopefully you can find the saved file there.

I upgraded my psp 2006 from 5.00 m33-6 to version 5.50. Now it does not detect the games saved in my memory stick. What should i do?

Are you trying to play the game from the memory stick? Or are you trying to play a game from the UMD and retrieve the saved game data from the memory stick?

5.00 m33 is a custom firmware that allows the PSP to play games stored on a memory stick. If you upgrade to 5.50, which is an original Sony firmware, that functionality will go away. If you have custom firmware, you should never upgrade it or the features like playing homebrew or loading games from a memory stick will go away.

My problem is that this monday my TRANSFORMERS the game did have all I have saved on it. Tuesday comes and it is all gone

As a data protection feature if theres a corruption with any data it will automatically format which then deletes all that you have saved, something as little as saving it and switching it off can muddle up the save.
