I've been working on a project in Flash CS6 (later opened and modified in CC when it debuted) for months now. Today, I invested over an hour of animation into it when I noticed the autosave wasn't working, so I manually clicked Save. Flash CC then crashed and when restarted, it couldn't open the .fla. When I looked at the .fla file, it now says it's 1kb in size.
Thankfully, I have a Mac that utilizes Time Machine through a hard drive connected to my AirPort Extreme and I also periodically save all my source files to my personal web server. However, I still lost all of the work I did today. Is there anyway to fix the .fla file or am I just S.O.L. and need to grab the last save Time Machine copy?
Regardless, I'll be sticking with Flash CS6 and might just cancel CC subscription completely since I only use Photoshop and Flash anyway.
if you have a working swf you might be able to decompile it to recreate your fla.
in any case, start saving your flas with version numbers because all versions of flash can corrupt the current document. i start with whateverproject_01.fla and increment the 01 until the project is complete.
