Windows BSOD losing saved work
« on: May 07, 2021, 05:58:05 pm »
I think the title says it all. I'm trying to do a big refactoring, I keep hitting Save All, and yet when my laptop falls over and restarts I get the code I had yesterday. Maybe Lazarus has a backup system which is being "helpful"? How do I make this stop? Thanks.

Hi!

Look in the directory

Code: Text  [Select][+][-]
  1.  [YourProject]/lib/backup

There are the files when you saved your project the last time

Why you're having BSOD at first place? In rare occasions I have it it was RAM failure. Or corrupted filesystem as a result of RAM errors.

There is a package "AutoSave" in Online-Package-Manager. Never used it, though.
Mainly Lazarus trunk / fpc 3.2.0 / all 32-bit on Win-10, but many more...

y.ivanov, it's this thing.

Sorry, did you mean "that was the thing"?
This is a how-to article. What exactly was? RAM failure? Corrupt system files? Bad drivers?
IMHO, You should try to backup your data immediately, preferably attaching you HDD to a different machine
RAM instability is a real nasty thing. Hope you've found it on time
