Sketchup didnt save


#1

I stupidly didnt save my file that i was working on. I know theres an autosave setting but where is it saved to. Did it even save since i never saved the file.


#2

Check in the user home directory or User “Documents” directory, for an “Untitled.skb” file.

If there rename it to something that makes sense with an “.skp” extension.


#3

I couldnt find anything like that.


#4

The autosave files are deleted if you close SketchUp normally - they are retained only if SketchUp crashes.

Anssi

#6

Hi Alicia,

Does SketchUp create auto-save files? — SketchUp Help

Make sure that you’re looking in your user-specific folder. There’s a system-wide folder located in “/Library/Application Support”, and a user-specific one in “/Users//Library/Application Support”. To access your user-specific Library directory, click on the desktop to make sure the Finder menu is visible, then choose the “Go” menu. With that menu open, hold down the Option key and a “Library” menu item should appear. Alternately, open a Terminal window and type “open ~/Library/Application Support/”, which will open a Finder window to your user-specific directory.

If SketchUp crashes, I would expect to find a file in that directory named something like “AutoSave_Untitled.skp”.

Thanks,
Marc
