Hello all,

I'm using ArcGIS 10 SP 3. I went to open my mxd this morning and it did not contain any of my changes from the last 3 hours I had worked on it yesterday. I had our IT dept restore hourly versions and it appears it didn't save any changes after 11:38am. This is the second time this has happened but this time it is a different folder location and a different mxd file. Has anyone else had this happen? This is scary because it must be a software bug and if it could happen twice then there's no telling how often I could be losing a half day's worth of work. The mxd appears to save at the time and even when you close the program it asks if I want to save, I say yes. But the next day it has a time stamp hours before I would have closed it. I will call tech support next, but I don't think they will be able to help me. ugh
