cant recover indesign file
I hope someone can help me with my problem, its very urgent regarding a file containing two weeks of work:
My indesign crashed with a file open that i havn't saved for a while, but which i thought ha been autosaved, I have tried this a lot of times before and thought i could just selected reopen of the program and it would start the recovery of the file. In the meantime i moved the original file from the desktop to my documents folder and when indesign reopened it had the message:
[File name] could not be found. Do you want to postpone its recovery?
Click yes to recover this document later.
Click no to delete recovery data for this document.
Click cancel to postpone all document recovery until later
I have tried to move the file back to the desktop and open indesign once again, but i get the same message.
In my library recoverydata map i cant find any recovery/back up files at all, are all of these just deleted beacuse of the move?..
Can it really be, that since i moved the file, all recovery options are deleted? and why then does the message say that i can postponed the recovery? If there is no way for me to fix it and then restart the recovery, then why the postpone option?
Hope some of you guys have tried this and have a solution..
How can you not have backups? You didn't mention what OS you use, but even Windows 10 has an implemented feature that would regularly save versions of files (usually daily) so you restore on their original storage location, if there is no better solution. Macs have time machine.
The recovery feature of ID is not a guarantee.
