was ever run through Webworks to create some form of online help, then under
the <project_name>\temp folder you'll find a mif version of it.

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

Tips are welcome--the sooner the better.
