Question ID = CS001352467
I am adding subtitles to a project. In November 2013, when I launched my project, about 3 weeks worth of the subtitles was lost. In an attempt to prevent this problem from happening again, I started to save many versions of the project, like this:
However, now every day, my project doesn't save new subtitles I've add that day. I've noticed some patterns. As I'm adding new subtitles, if I save the project and it automatically starts the saving process, I know it is saving the new subtitles I've just added. However, if I save the project and I'm prompted to select a folder and give the project a file name, I know it will not save the new subtitles. Furthermore, when this happens, I am unable to save the project. I've even tried to save the project with a different file name or to a different folder. It just won't save.
Powerdirector Version 11
Windows 7 32-bit
Unfortunately, the problem is still happening. Here is what I did:
- Auto save project every
- 5 minutes
I c onfirmed the auto saves are here: C:\\Users\\desktop\\AppData\oaming\\CyberLink\\PowerDirector\\11.0\\AutoSave
I've attached a screen shot showing that the project does save at first. However, after a while, it just stops saving. For example, I was able to save it myself at:
- 9:17 am
- 9:33 am
However, every attempt to save it again fails. It just won't save. Also, in auto-save, you can see it does auto save frequently:
- 9:22 am
- 9:23 am
- 9:25 am
- 9:30 am
- 9:32 am
- 9:38 am
- 9:40 am
- 9:42 am
Then, it stopped auto saving, and would not auto-save.
I also followed your recommendation of Pack Project Materials. This actually deleted all of the chapters in my project, so now I have to re-create every chapter. Furthermore, this doesn't make a new PDS file. It just moves all of the movie and image files to a new folder, so this doesn't have any impact on the Saving issue.
Lastly, I have completly uninstalled and reinstalled PowerDirector, and have also tried installing all the PowerDirector 11 patches, yet still this saving issue persists.
