can any one tell me the location where the auto-recovery files are kept on the c: drive. One of those times you should have said yes rather than no.

I was hoping to recover the directory to a previous restore point and recover the file. But now I can not get the program to auto-save/recover a file so I can track down the temp directory the program is using to save the temp file. I know it is a persistent file...... any ideas on where they are saved?

BST saves them in the current user's home directory, the Propeller Tool (provided that recovery is enabled) stores them under

Vista: <user home>/AppData/Local/Parallax/...
XP: <user home>/Local Settings/Application Data/Parallax/...

Just verified (Vista) that when I compile (F8) an unsaved file a temporary copy appears in a directory in the hierarchy listed above. HTH

Thank you very much. I should be able to recover it now. I gave up looking for it and started to try to redo it from memory........never a good thing. The current version loaded on the propboard for my gsm project is working and was really debating loading the new code. At least now I should be able to see how bad I boched it.
Thanks again

for the future check dropbox.com
the free 2Gb version includes a 30 days data recovery.
Otherwise payed version can offer an unlimited recovery for a small fee.
