Is there any way to recover the changes we did in our application?

Hi,

I was working on one of the application since long. Usually QlikView periodically saves the work we do. But in my case my machine went down abruptly because of some automatic installation. The previous version I see in the folder is around 8 days older. I am touching this application everyday and making required changes.

Is there any way to recover the changes I made to the application considering the fact that I don't have the version saved for past 8 days?

I believe you can not recover, but, autorecover files are stored by default into C:\Users<YourUser>\AppData\Local\QlikTech\QlikView.

Hi Marcio,

Thank you for your reply. Your approach could probably work but I don't see AppData folder for my username. I work on company network so I am not sure how to locate the AppData folder here. I even tried with wildcard search. I could ablr to get inside another user's profile but doesn't show the required path for me.

If you use Windows, you can configure it in "Windows Explorer" to view the hidden folders. I do not know if you have this permission in the company you work for.

Have you tried the Windows Shadow Copy functionality (provided it is enabled in your organization) ?

Thank you Chip for your inputs. As my application itself didn't save the work, it doesn't appear under version. But I could see few previous versions which I am unable to see in my current folder. For future reference this would definitely be a wise approach.

Thanks Again!
