Crash! "Do I want to open the last auto-saved version?" I don't know, Do I?!

 I'm sure you've had this happen to you...

You're working along, you've found your creative groove and the show you are working on is going to leave them crying in the aisles!  You just have to put these last few......CRASH!  ProShow shuts down without any warning.

"Please, please, please tell me its all there!  Please tell me I didn't just loose the last hour of work!!"

You open ProShow.  You open the show you were just working on.  You say a little prayer.

Um....I don't know.  Do I?

The answer is...probably, but you should double check something before you hit Yes or No.  You want to look to see which file is more recent; your Show file or the last Auto Saved file.

 

First, you have to locate where you've saved the show file.  I have created a ProShow Files>Shows folder on my hard drive where I save all of my Shows.  Using my Windows Explorer, I find the Show file (.psh) and the AutoSave file (.pxc) that will be right there with it.  I look at the Date Modified for each file.  In this case, my Show file (Just Fishin) was last saved at 12:09pm.  The auto save file (.pxc) was last saved at 1:09pm.  So the auto save file will have everything that I've done in the last hour saved!!

Hallelujah!!  Yes!  I DO want to open the last auto-saved show!!
