Musescore crashed and did not auto-save, deleting hours of work
S3 - Major
- I used the arrow keys to adjust a note.
- My cursor showed a loading symbol.
- The program closed completely.
- Upon reopening, there was no message prompting restoration of work and the file is showing a "last modified" date of over a month ago.
Is there any way you can reproduce this issue? It seems like this only happened the one time.
Was this score created in an earlier version of musescore, and if so, have you saved it since converting it?
If you had performed hours of work and the last modified date on the file you are looking at is still showing a modified date from a month ago, then either a) you never saved the file (in which case, that is unfortunate but you are expected to save your work!), or b) the file you were working on for hours and saving regularly isn't the file you are looking at. could be you were actually opening another copy of the file from another folder.
Either way, there is also an autosave file MueScore creates automatically for disaster recovery like this. If you say what version of MuseScore and what OS, we can help you find it.
