I'm having serious problems with indesign files. I try to open them and am told that 'automatic recovery failed'--and when I proceed, the file refuses to open. I've been saving many versions of my projects, so as not to risk losing a lot of work. But it keeps happening--and sometimes applies to previously saved versions. Please help!
Version of InDesign? Operating system?
OS X El Capitan (version 10.11.4)
I should mention that I'm using Dropbox to host the entire production folder, and to work on the project from multiple computers.
Is Dropbox a frequent culprit in these sorts of affairs? Do you know how I might go about salvaging my last saved versions (which are apparently now corrupted)?
Are you saying that you have frequent crashes? That's not normal and you need to solve that first.
