Hi

I am trying to figure out what to do if a folder that contained the revit file was deleted. Its unfortunate that all back ups are stored in the same folder as the file, so if the folder was accidentally deleted, then you would lose all files associated with the project. 

 

If this happened, how would I recover. I have looked in the temp folder, but the temp files are only there when the revit project is open. As soon as I close the project the temp files disappears. I have copied the file onto the desktop, then change the file name to .rvt, but it will not open as it is trying to upgrade from 2009 to 2017, even though we use 2017. 

If a CAD file was deleted by mistake, I would easily find it in the temp folder and then just change the name to .dwg and it would open, although it would be an older save, but it would still be something. Why can't I do this with Revit? Am I missing something??

Cheers

You need a strategy that goes beyond Revit, so you can recover deleted files or due to corruption / disaster.

Why mess with the temp file?  Just save a copy of your file to a backup folder.

Not trying to mess with anything. Just looking for a solution to a possible problem. If i was to make a separate folder and copy a back up in there, I would have to do that every so often just to be safe. Is there a way to save the back up files into a different location? That would be a great fix from Revit.

You should backup your work in at least another device, and if possible another location tp recover from accidents like that. The sooner you have that implemented the better for you.
