I am running Studio 7 on a W10 system. I recently was editing a source file on a mega169 project. I decided that I should save the edited file with a new file name, and replace the existing file in the project with the new one. So, I selects "save as" from the menu, and I got an error message, "The operation could not be completed. Unspecified error" no error number, no other explanation. However, when I looked in the folder where I keep my source files, I could see that the new file was in there. I added it to my project 9aftere removing the previous file name) and all seemed to be correct - i.e., the edits I had done were all in there. I then opened up the previous file, so that i could refer back to it (or revert, if necessary) and to my surprise, the OLD file had all of my recent edits in it. In other words, I now do not have a backup copy of that file. Hopefully I will not need it, but what might be happening here? Does S7 automatically save the file periodically? What about the error message? Doing a Google search seems to indicate that this is Visual Studio error, yet the newfile IS created,. Any ideas here? Could this be due to a misunderstanding of what Autorecover is supposed to do? My experience has been that when "save as" is selected, the old file is NOT changed.
