  • Auto File Save

    I have my auto file save set to 5 min., it takes about 20 seconds for the progress bar to go across the screen to complete the save when programming from cad. After saving it takes another 20 or so seconds for the serealizing cad to finish.
    The cad file is 25Mb.
    The computer system is Pentium 4
    2.60GHz
    1.00 Gb Ram
    Nvidia Quadro Fx500/Fx600 (128Mb)
    Also running off the network.
    I don't know alot about the hardware, my IS department tells me its adequate??

    Recommendation would be helpful.
    Thank you, Jay Gus

    It's as good as I've got, performance acceptable to me.

      I have my save set to 1 min. . It saves without interupting the programming that I may be doing. It saves smaller amounts and is quicker. tlnzz

        What I do is program off computer hard drive with save set every 1 minute then when program is finished, transfer to network server. Save is much faster.

          I turned my auto save off just for that reason. "BUT" if you do that you better learn to hit save often or you'll be sorry.

            Since you are working off the network, it's slowing down the saving process. Even though the max speed is 100mb/sec on a network, you have to consider firewalls and server speed as well.

            I work off the harddrive and do backups weekly.

              I'm confused. Are you working from the hard drive or from the network? "off the network" could mean that you are working off of the network meaning not connected to the network. "off the network" could mean you are working off of the network meaning that you are saving and loading files off of the network.

              Which is it. If you are saving and loading from the network then I think Underspec has the answer. Save the file to the computer's hard drive and then use windows explorer to transfer backups to the network as neccessary.

                I keep mine turned off and program on the hard drive also. I move it to the server when completed. I make sure to save every so often if I need too. I have messed up a few times so I keep it in my mind to be careful. I always use CAD so I know what you mean especially when the files are very large it take allot of time. I think other people have posted about the same thing so you might could do a search for that one. I think most people leave it off but I can only speak for myself for sure. Good Luck!!

                  Mine is off but I have learned to use alt s (edit Ctrl S)a lot. I save everything to my hd then move it where it needs to go.

                    I guess I'm not saving to the network, but actually just conected to it.

                      Are you doing alt+s or ctrl+s. ctrl+s has alway been save as far as I can remeber.

                          I just changed my auto save to 1 min., it takes 25-30 seconds to complete.
                          So every minute about 30 seconds is saving.

                            I keep autosave turned "off" and use Ctrl-S frequently. When I was using autosave, it always seemed to save just after i had done something stupid that needed to be undone. My practice now is to "save as" (incrementing the ser. number by 1) when I reach a point to which I may want to return.

                              Don,

                              This is a very good practice, I do the same, when my single brain cell can remember to
