DataCAD 22 keeps crashing on our workstations and does not save the work done. Once you reboot the datacad program and re-open the effected file,
none of work has been saved and the swp file is not updated. Any ideas of a fix.

Hello Robert,

Hmmm, well its the crashing that isn't good - but the best/only way to get things saved is to use Control-S as often as you can.

Any thing(s) in particular being done before the crashes? Is it in some specific files, and not others? Or, is it happening when you are doing something?

What version of Windows are you using? If its Windows 11, there may be things that can be done - I don't use Win11; but there have been threads on this, I think?

We have 4 stations running DataCAD 22 with a save timer set at 5 minutes. I reset the session locations to be on each
computers c: drive in the DataCAD22 directory. All stations are networked to a central drive that the project files
are located on. Each station will freeze and require a reboot with loss of work up to the point of reboot. We have been
running DataCAD since 1987 and never experienced this before.

What is the full path to where the auto save is going?
