Editor temp files?

3 posts in this topic

Does the editor create/save temp files with the code you're working on? I had my files on a USB drive and hadn't backed them up in a little while, so the new stuff I had added is lost now that the drive has died on me. I've run chkdsk and recovery software on the drive and it found a lot of the other files, but not my au3 ones. Does SciTE create and save any kind of temp files as you work that I could try to recover from, or is the new stuff gone for good now?

Whenever you Tidy, check syntax or run the script, it saves over the old copy. Tidy will create a copy of the code before the Tidy, but usually in a sub-folder in the same location of the script.

Since it sounds like you were working straight off the USB drive, I believe your files are gone :D

That's pretty much what I figured, but before I wiped the hard drive I was using AutoIt on and it use for something else I figured I would ask. Edited by BlackHoleSun
