Multiple copies of the PPTA file
I notice that as I save my Powerpoint presentation multiple copies of the PPTA file are being created at the same time.
My PPTX file is called ChemHygiene_Module1_V5.pptx and I have the following PPTA files
Most of these ppta files were created at the same time and are the same size - most of the time.
In addition to that the size of the ChemHygiene_Module1_v5.ppta indicates that I have lost the audio in this file - it should be in the region of 21MB, but is only 345 KB. I have had this problem before and found the audio in one of the PPTA files that get 'renamed' with the 'old' in the filename. The audio was recovered by renaming files and getting rid of the seemingly corrupt file.
Now, no matter how many times I do this - I get these multiple ppta files and every now and then lose the audio in the PPTA file.
I am a MAC user, run Windows using parallels, and run Articulate '09 on WindowsXP. I have been working like this for 3 years now and have never had this problem before.
Any suggestions as to why this is happening?
