Every Autodesk® Revit® user has been faced with a situation of emergency shutdown and loss of data at some point. No one wants to lose time and work done. This inspired us to create the "R AutoSave" application - auto-save for Revit!
The main task of R AutoSave is to minimize the loss of data.
You just need to install R AutoSave, set the auto-save interval and that's it!
For example, you specify an interval of auto-saving of 5 minutes. This means that R AutoSave will automatically save your project every 5 minutes (completely without your participation).
You can still make a "manual" file saving (the "Save" button) when you need it.
The backup files created during the "manual" saving (files like "Project Name.001.rvt") will be stored by default in the "Backup" folder in the project directory.
After an emergency shutdown starts Revit, and then open the file. A dialog box appears with options for restoring the file. Select the option you want and you will restore the file.
Closing a file without saving.
If you want to close a file without saving the changes you have made, just do it as usual. Changes (including all automatic saving) will not be saved, only standard "manual" save will be saved.
R AutoSave works with the following file types:
- Project files (RVT)
- Local copies of a central file (RVT)
- Revit Family (RFA)
- Project Template Files (RTE)
