File contains corrupted data - Where is Autorecovery File in SL2?
Dec 18, 2014
I have a small 10 slide course I created and then went back and was adding audio into it - I normally save after each slide - I completed about the 5th slide - started the 6th slide - then I tried to save and got an error :
The Project file could not be saved.
File contains corrupted data.
I saved it about 15 mins prior to getting this error.
At this point - I ended up just closing the file - re-opening and again - was not able to save it at all. (slide 5 & 6 had no audio when I reopened)
I then opened a new file - did an import and all the slides imported except for slide 6. It was gone. I had to completely re-create it.
Slide 5 was missing was also missing the audio - I assume this is because I did not save after that slide was complete.
Yes - I am following the articulate guideline - running it local etc...
So a few questions.
1. where is the autorecovery file? I have it set to save every 10 mins. where does it save to? I know at least 15 mins passed from the point I imported the audio for slide 5 and I ran into the save issue I would assume the point of the autorecovery would be to auto-recover, ie slide 5 should have audio.
2. what steps can I do to prevent getting this random error? The next course I have to do is 50 slides. Its complete - I just have to add and time the audio - the last thing I want to do is run into this issue and have to keep importing.
Any help is very much appreciated.
