I worked on my .osm file, gathered results.. everything was fine, and then when I reopened the .osm file (without changing anything) I had this message that popped up image description So I reloaded the weather file, and checked all the tabs to see if something else has changed, and realised that all the measures were not there anymore, so I reloaded the measures and ran it ... but it failed , I could though fix the error but I don't know why is this happening and affecting the work (by generating errors)

Does anyone know anything about that? and mostly how to avoid this kind of crashing ?

@Raghda Derbel any chance that you saved the file using Save As instead of Save? Or maybe you copy the osm file to different location?

I do that often, when I want to register a backup, but when this happened it was on the same last file I worked on (and ran it). But is it a problem if I use Save As, and also if I choose a different location? If so, what should I do when I want save a backup/copy of my work? Thanks :)

@Raghda Derbel It is safe to save as. It iscnot safe to copy the osmbfile and paste it to a different location

Ah okay! No I didn't copy and past it, It was always via 'save as'.

@Raghda Derbel Could you duplicate that issue or was it one time thing?
