Autosave never works

For years, I’ve had Rhino 5 on a computer running Windows 7. I recently got a new machine that runs Windows 10, and I still use Rhino 5.

On the Windows 7 machine, I had no issue with AutoSave. On the Windows 10 version, it will not Autosave at all. It processes an Autosave automatically, but during the save, it always stops, and says Autosave Failed. It keeps a TMP file (the file that Autosave makes while processing), but that file is garbage.

Is there something with Windows 10 and Rhino 5 that stops Autosave from fully processing?

Really annoying…

Hi Tim - is the working file in a synced folder? (Google Drive, Drop Box etc)

Can you run the SystemInfo command in Rhino and paste the results here?



There is a hidden restriction not allowing autosaving inside many folders in the system drive.

Win10 in particular, but don’t remember right now how I deactivated it.

Also had autosave issues when using GoogleDrive, as Pascal mentioned.
With OneDrive everything is OK.

So suggestion is, try to not create your files in C:, nor desktop, do it in some other drive, and if you use cloud use OneDrive.

Thanks! I’ll try that.
