FlexiCAD automatically creates a backup autosave file of your work-in-progress as you are working, so that a file may be recovered in the event of an unforeseeable incident such as battery dying, or operating system crash.
FlexiCAD automatically saves the current file every 2 minutes by default. After 1000 saves, the oldest Autosave data is overwritten.
The directory for these Autosave backup files, and the time between auto-saves can be selected in the General Preferences window.
To open an Autosave file:
- From the File menu (F3D button), select ‘Open Auto Save File’
- From the Open Backup File menu, select the file you wish to reopen. A preview of the file will show. You may click on ‘Date Modified’ to sort by the most recent creation date in order to find the most recent files.
