Hello, I'm a student just recently learning how to use Eclipse. I don't know all that much about it. The other day, I was editing some of my work and then when I clicked out of it and reopened, my work was not saved. And I can't find it anywhere on Eclipse or my computer. It just has my document from before I edited it. Is there any way of getting the changes I made back? Thanks! -Megan

Megan, This behavior may
This behavior may occur if Total Eclipse was writing to the file in a temporary location, such as if the file had been opened from an email program or a zip file instead of being saved to a jobs folder.
Another potential cause of this issue is if you are operating Total Eclipse under Windows Vista with the UAC ( User Account Control ) feature enabled. This feature must be disabled utilizing the instructions on the main page of our web site prior to working with Total Eclipse.
Unfortunately, neither of these scenarios would permit you to retrieve the edits made to the transcript.

Changes didn't save
Here's what I found by clicking on Help and searching for the words automatic backup:
There is no explicit "save" command for files, because Total Eclipse automatically saves your work as you go.
If you are working in a text file, Eclipse will save the file anytime you create a new paragraph, or move the cursor into a different paragraph. This will happen if you are doing a realtime job, or editing an existing transcript. Closing a text file will also save it at that time.
Let's hope that will be the last time you ever lose an edit - Jenny L. Griffin
