View Full Version : LWO currupted

07-05-2003, 08:48 PM
I was working on this (http://vbulletin.newtek.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=7671) when the machine rebooted unexpectedly (no related to LW). Now the object file seems to be corrupted. I have a very early backup of this so not everything is lost. Is there a way I can recover my last object? I can't load it neither in modeler or layout.

If the Hub was running during the session, there might be a version of it in the lwhub directory under:

Documents and Settings\Your Name\Local Settings\Temp\lwhub\ directory.

A file for it might have been created just prior to the crash. You might have to check the files with creation dates and times that match the time of the crash.

All right! I have found two temporal files corresponding at the time of the crash, I'll check.

Thanks for your help!

This can also happen when saving Scene and Objects. If Layout crashes during the saving process it can wipe your files.

There possibly some irony in that :)
