(solved) Erased twin User actor by mistake...possible recovery?



  • Hello,

    I had 2 user actor with differant name but same ID, like hidden twins.  I erase the content of one and it automaticaly erased the precious content of the second one that took days of codding.

    By the time I realized that, I had allready closed and reopen Isadora, so no Controle Z possible.

    Now, even in old versions of my patch, the precious user actor is empty...

    Is there a way to retrieve this?

    best,

    If you've got the same user actor anywhere on another computer

    OOF ! That hurts, it also isn't saved in an auto-save file anymore I presume ?

    always keep multiple iterations of important user actors. Throw them onto Dropbox/google Drive, or email them to yourself at the end of each day of intense work. You can also compress them to preserve copies that can’t accidentally be overwritten.

    @tease

    Did you save it on your hard disk to the user actor folder? Or did you just use it in your patch?

    Best Michel

    if you remove the user actor (both) from the global user actor folder, and then open another file that used it, it should be in the file (it won't be able to update it from the global folder)
