Good to hear, Craig.
I've had nothing but success with the update - it installed on all our machines fine (Win 7 and Vista), and everything is working great.
I hope things figured out soon so everyone can get back to editing.
Thanx for the encouragement Eric (and guys in the other positive post)
Yes...I certainly hope that the issue will be resolved as soon as I get my box back.
Its always kind of a relief to find something definitive in an issue. Makes it easy / easier to deal with the "known".
The guys are just trying to get what they can off the faulty drive and I will tidy up the shrapnel.
You Pro guys probably know exactly what ran through my head when I discovered I had an issue...with a number of incomplete projects in the system.
FWIW: I am well pleased that the update did not come out 3 days earlier....
I shot 2 commercials on Tuesday and completed the urgent one following day...
Sorry to hear of the HDD issue, but glad to hear that things with CS5 might not be so bad.
I was becoming alarmed that CS5.0.2 was going to be the new CS4.0.1. Scary days those.
I've got my fingers X'ed, that by the time I get the new machine built, and am ready for the CS5 jump, all little issues will be resolved.
Thanks for posting, and good luck,
Quick question: though on the South Island, did you get any damage from the recent earthquake?
Hoping that you didn't even know about it.
There is no damage this far north of the earthquake Bill.
Fairly extensive damage down there though. (Christchurch City and region)
Meantime to my own damage report.
My Disk was un recoverable and I have installed a new Drive this morning. Because the drive was for the sole purpose of storing "Projects" for all the CS5 apps...I have lost them all. Unfortunately , I think that is where the autosaves resided as well. Looking for auto save location now.
Whatever...this leaves me with 4 work in progress edits to re-do from scratch.
I am going to revise my auto save and manual save procedures. ( Yeah... too late I know ....but this is a first for me)
"experience is something you get ...just after you need it"
On one front, great news. Sorry about the damage to the South Island though. Thanks for reporting.
Personally, I think that a claim to your insurance agent might be in order... just kidding. Hope that the AutoSaves exist, are safe and will work to save you much work.
Again, glad that you are OK. Jeremy was worried too, and posted to The Lounge, in concern.
