### OpenStudio sketchup geometry being erased

I am having a lot of trouble with my sketchup geometry being erased when, for example, I need to put my work aside for a while. I save both the Sketchup and OSM files before I exit. I am working with a file called Miami 1.

When I try to reimport the OSM file into Sketchup, I get a window that says the following:

"Removing previously linked OpenStudio content.

Open OpenStudio model at C:/users/brillerd/documents/Miami1.osm to restore content."


When I hit OK or try to close the box with the upper right hand corner X, most of my Sketchup geometry is erased!

Any thoughts would be very much appreciated.
