    Work not saving??

    Has anyone run into an issue where Revit 2011 refuses to save randomly?

    We have two teams that have had entire day's worth of work lost the next time they open the file up. The situation is this:
    The team members work and save the file, work shared files each time, along the way just like normal. The next day the they open the file and all the work from the previous day is gone. The history of each file shows all the saves from the night before and the time stamp is correct but all of the work is just gone.

    The teams have input large amounts of work so it's not like a few items go missing. We've filed a support request but want to see if anyone has seen something like this before.
    Thanks for any input.

    I have had this happen to me once. Only last 4 hours or work though. I think it has something to do with the Local files not saving and being over writen each time you open.

    I have also had recovery files save the linked model and not my model... very strange.

      I have only seen this happen when multiple people are trying to work on a project while the central file is opened by someone.

      Silly questions but it's the checklist I go through when this happens:
      • Is everyone working in a local file?
      • Is the local file located locally or on a server? (leaving it on a server makes it possible that 2 people are trying to work int he same "local" file)
      • Are you performing a Reload Latest to make sure that your local file is getting the latest Central File modifications? Sometimes you save to central and the local file isn't saved. This would mean next time you open your local file it doesn't contain the last items that were saved to the central file.
      • Are you using Workshare Monitor to ensure that multiple people aren't working in the same file or in the central file?

        Thanks guys, it's comforting to hear that someone is having similar issues.

        I'll check on where everyone is saving their local files.

          Right, and check out the file date itself. Happened to me today: I totally freaked out about my local file missing a day of work. Until I discovered that for some stupid reason Revit had relocated the File Path to the default My Documents path instead of the project folder from which I opened it...

            Martijn,
            is this in 2012? That is rather worrisome if that is getting repathed unintentionally. The new GUID behavior in the INI scares me to death because of this kind of thing.

              Nope 2011. Nearly gave me a heartattack too. Never seen this before...
