No, you know what's worse? When the bloody program won't LET you save at all! That happened to me on Sai a while back. It was quite discouraging.

My shit has auto-recovery, so if some thing happens (crash/shutdown/ect) it will have a thing saying "choose ones you want to save Date/Time" And yeah.

It can be easy to forget to save, especially when you get really into it and get idea after idea and lose track of how much time has passed. Plus sometimes I'm guilty of "gambling" my chances by deliberately not saving too often when the file size gets too big and the saving process becomes painfully slow :yawn:  don't want to spend more time saving than working :p

Luckily it's a problem I got on my last computer more than this one, Maybe I save more now - or maybe technology doesn't suck as much as it used to =p

Sometimes I save every three seconds and the next minute I'm drawing for an hour straight without touching the save option. :P

Gawd, tell me about it; the place where I live is prone to frequent and unexpected power outages, so it wasn't uncommon to be in the middle of something on my computer when BAM...screen goes black and there went all my work!!!
Dear gawd, it'd drive me to tears sometimes...T-T...but I learned my lesson and now I save EVERYTHING, important or not, several times while I'm working just in case.

I deleted a 10+ hour assignment—as well as everything else I had done in that class that semester—by accidentally overwriting the folder containing it with an empty folder right before class. :dummy:

I swear my fingers dry hump the ctrl and S buttons because I don't want to have to redo anything, so no... that's not something that happens often for me :lol: However, I had the joy of a statically charged cat erasing two days worth of on and off work on something :stare: And the little bastard was too adorable for me to be mad at him :shakefist:

there were a few times at work where i would accidentally kick the power strip under my desk and everything would power down on me.  luckily i was working in programs that had autosave type features for easy back up in crash events like that.  so i only lost at most 5 minutes of work even though i hadn't saved anything for a couple hours.

It happened to me a few times. Now I press alt+f+s compulsively, even when I'm thinking over the next step of a drawing. I also save multiple versions of large files just in case the most recent one gets corrupted but it's been a long time since anything got corrupted on me.

alt+f+s?
that's a good idea btw, saving multiple versions o: i have had the corrupted file happen when i've not safely removed my usb (annoying things) .-.

:iconjericawinters:
JericaWinters Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2012
alt+f+s is a short cut. The drop down lists in software have words with letters that are underlined. Pressing the alt key and the letters in sequence will make you super fast. In this case, I'm using "file" and then "save" (f and s is underlined).
