windows 7 computer crashed while doing a simple line drawing task. previous crashes have always resulted in the existence of a .3dmbak file which could normally be opened successfully. not so in this recent case, am left with a RhinoCrashDump.dmp file of 26.6mb. is there anyway to open or recover from this file?
i have another situation now. the file was saved into the autosave folder (thanks pascal). i can only access the autosave folder by ‘searching’ for autosave. the folder tree shows user/appdata/roaming/mcneel/rhinoceros/5.0/autosave.
when i navigate normally to the ‘user’ folder it contains no folder called ‘appdata’.
o.k. so i get to the autosave folder by ‘searching’ and copy the file i’m after. i then paste it into my folder of rhino projects. when i open it, it is in read only mode. when i try and save it, it says ‘you must use save as’ to save changes. whether i use the same name or a new one, it refuses saying ‘file access denied’.
if i open the file as it is in the autosave folder i can work on it and save it o.k. but it seems that moving it anywhere else locks it up. also how do i find the real location of this ‘autosave’ folder. there is only one ‘user’ folder on the machine (inside the ‘users’ folder. neither of these contain a folder marked ‘appdata’, and searching for ‘appdata’ gives no results. so why does the file tree path show C:\users\user\appdata\roaming\mcneel\rhineoceros\5.0\autosave’filename’.
i’m confused by this.
