Hmm, seems unlikely, as I run all backups manually after I end my work for
the day.

All I can think of is some sort of collision between your backup process and
the FM Book generation process.  Unlikely (assuming the software is done
right), but hey...

FM 10 
Win 7 


I was just working in a book that I created about a month ago. I created a
PDF, found some things that needed fixing, edited a couple of files (not the
one at issue), updated the book, found a bad x-ref, then found that the file
the x-ref went to is gone. I mean completely gone. Not in the book file, not
in the folder on my hard drive, not anywhere on my hard drive. Gone!!!!! 

I edited the file earlier, and of course it was the only one I'd made
extensive changes to today, and it's also the longest file of the book
(though only 20 pages). 

How on earth could the file get deleted. Everything is local on my computer.
I'm the only one using any of this. The file was there when I created the
PDF only a few minutes before the disappearing act. My only actions after
creating the PDF were to edit a couple of files in the book, then update the
book. Then WTF, the file is gone. 

I've recovered the file from backups (I have multiple backup methods and
locations), but now I'm worried about this issue. What could cause it? I've
been using FM 10 for years with no issues. (I upgraded to FM 12 recently,
but haven't updated my old projects.) 

Any ideas???????
