Highly related to this old topic. " Problems with drag'n drop. " I have Opus version 9 and have re-discovered this bug, no doubt now fixed. Leo did a great job of replication, and correction in 2012. But in stumbling upon this old bug i lost a file that i was backing up so i would not lose it.
Not having done much with the win 7 32bit machine, so as to preserve its contents, I am using another machine to now ask: " How can i recover a .txt file that vanished during an aborted drag n drop ... " "Aborting the copy progress deletes the files irreversibly" was the summary in 2012. due to the [then] nature of 'copy,' which was actually more like move and then replace, as opposed to some safer, quicker method that should have been attempted in case of unforeseen difficulty. I would like to be shown where i might look to find a cached copy of an aborted drag and drop file that vanished upon clicking on 'replace', when offered 'cancel, skip or replace.' I chose replace, because cancel seemed dangerous, skip seemed unlikely to make a copy, and replace sounded safe enough to leave me a copy of what i was copying. But alas, it did not. the file was removed from the left pane while i observed it disappearing. It's NOT in the trash, not in either source or destination, and not in a 30 minute search and recovery program that finds accidentally deleted files. I'm not too familiar with opus' workings but maybe it is known where such temp workings are kept.... surely the data is on my hard drive somewhere. Its a one of a kind file, that i was copying for safety reasons as it will be very hard to make all over again from its many sources. I did, in the creation of it, do many 'saves' until it was build up quite nicely, and then only intended to duplicate it on another hd for safekeeping. It vanished in an instant with the press of one button with the mouse click. Perhaps there is a history of "saves". 'control Z' has no long string of history, i tried that. I can be more specific as to the very precise circumstances at the time, for th0se willing to help me find this file. It is a very reproducible event, as i went on to lose 5 more, short, inconcsequentiol files to make sure i was able to reproduce the conditions. But i cannot find any sign of any of them... Where to look?
