Can't you ask your network admin to restore your files.  They have to
back up the network regularly. If they can't give you the latest, at
least they should be able to restore to a recent save.  So it won't be a
total loss.

Subject: Disk vs memory


My associate and I have just discovered that all our work in FrameMaker
yesterday is likely lost. The network people were updating servers
yesterday and unknowingly lost our files and probably others. Can anyone
tell if and where I can find those files on our C drives, which I assume
is the "disk" referred to in Frame doc?

I recall and find references in Frame doc to the interaction between
computer memory and disk, which suggests that copies of all saves are
stored on C. But I find no information identifying a location on the
disk that files are saved to.  A search of C for the .fm files didn't
turn up the targets.

Tips are welcome--the sooner the better.
