Here's what I would do: 1) Back up a copy of both the original and the recovered versions to someplace safe. 2) Open the recovered version in FrameMaker. 3) Open the original version in FrameMaker (might have to force it). 4) Compare the differences between the two versions using FrameMaker's compare feature. (File-> Utilities-> Compare Documents) Select the "Summary and Composite Documents" option when doing so. 5) See which version has the most up-to-date information. Save that version over the original version.
Note: I just sort of developed this method by intuition. I'd be glad to hear if anyone does something different/there are problems with my method/easier ways to determine whether or not to go with a recovery version of a .fm file. -----Original Message----- From: framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-bounces at lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of Harold Winberg Sent: Friday, March 14, 2008 2:59 PM To: framers at lists.frameusers.com Subject: Recovery Hello Framers I am building a Book and got the Book Error Report saying Couldn't open file because a more recent autosaved or recovered version exists. There is a recovered version in the folder. What is the safe thing to do??
