I've had HVAC vanish from several OS models when I save them (we have cloud-based storage - Dropbox). I'll go back in to work on them days/weeks later, and the HVAC is completely gone. To work around this, I've even saved latest & greatest versions in other places in our cloud storage. 'Same.

Anyone else have this experience? And more importantly, how do I get this to STOP happening?

  • Windows 7
  • OS versions 2.1 & 2.3

You can read that article at DropBox website.

My gut feeling is that it is somewhat risky to start with, I think it would be better to work on local disk and from time to time to save to DropBox. But again I am not aware of your needs and in no way expert.

Anyway it does not seem to be OS problem.

Thanks, Avi. This is helpful. I'm going to sit down with tech help about this and see what we see. I'll report in.
