I created a blank AV script on my Mac version of Adobe Story filling in some basic ideas for a script.
I then worked remotely on the same AV script for several hours on a Windows 7 laptop, saving as many times as I could remember.
After a few hours, I logged into Adobe Story on my Mac and only my basic script was there.
I then checked my laptop to see if I could open the work I did, but it only showed the basic AV script.
Is there any way for me to recover this lost work? I spent hours on it and need it for a presenation soon.
Maybe the document was open in an unsaved state on the other computer. When you re-logged in, it called for saving this document on the server. The server saw that the document is being saved from a different session and created a version of previous document before overriding the data. Hence, your old version was present in the history.
Although there's a mechanism to auto-save documents after some time, still I would suggest to always save the document before starting to work on it from a different machine.
