Kendra's Tips and Tricks #1
I have heard it over and over and over again. Are my files recoverable if they corrupt in Design Studio? The unfortunate answer is NO! I am going to share with you a few things that I do to prevent my files from corrupting or prevent the heartache if they do.
- I ususally cut my file before saving if it is important to me, that way if my file corrupts it is not the end of the world. I already have my project completed!
- Once my file is saved, I email it to myself and just don't open it. That way, if I happen to alter the file later and it corrupts, I can go back and pull the original one from my email.
- Save you files in another folder besides the Project folder. (I have a file named Cricut on my desktop that I use to save them in.) I have found that when you get too many files in your Project folder sometimes your DS starts throwing Unhandled Exceptions more often.
- Save your files on an external hard drive or thumb drive. This too will free up thinking space on your computer and help.
- Remember not to put too much in your Design Studio file. Limit it to 5 or 6 pages. Make sure you don't put too many items on a page. You can always make a couple of smaller files if you need to.
Design Studio is a very basic program that still has a way to go.
