Not really, but photoshop tends to lag if I don't erase the history.

I've lost all sorts of work... although not on my new computer yet, had to do resets of PS because of wierd things (Luckily I could still save) but no crashes.
One time I lost 5 hours of video editing to a crash... that and I lost about 30 hours of work on a video total because the hard drive ate the data twice.

Yes, many times. And then, a friend of mine thought it would be funny to turn it off while I was doing a project for DA.

I think the only time it has not crashed while doing something was having sex... but then, I was not at the computer so it had no reason to crash :D

At least once every work Illustrator or Photoshop crash on me. I tend to push them a bit hard I think. Luckily, I'm in the habit of saving evey single time I make a change (every few seconds if it's not too slow).

i used to draw plans in acad and use ie icq mirc and sonique at the same time
still my old machine worked like a beast and never failed me..
it was a p2 i guess with 128 ram or something..
the key is to save the file whenever you make major changes i guess..
sometimes when i'm maniping i end up with three four versions of the same file.. well mine are very simple works of course but safer is better in this case..

O yeah... Several times....

I remember one of these BAD times was 'cause the Laptop's HDD crashed... (Yup, I had Laptod, but I sold it :P)

Another one was because the video card, another 'cause low memory... *sighs*

That's the reason 'cause I made this emote (Thanks, Hameed, for add it in your :+fav:'s): [link]

Yes, one time... around 6 hours of work were gone because i forgot to save- and as i wanted to save, Photoshop crashed :yum:

Now i'm saving like every 1 hour or so, if i'm working on smaller resolutions i save more often. Currently it takes ~7 fucking minutes to save... yeah, that's no fun. :nod:

Yes... many a time. I've lost over 400 pages of a book, too. It was a crap book, but it was my book nevertheless. The one I was writing.

Yea, more than one, but the last was rather long ago and not that bigga deal (althou it was at that moment).
Far worse were my recent HDD-crashes (just like *blackzer0 had them) early this year. Fortunately no data-loss this time. But I had one of those terminal ones too several years ago...

I hate it when that happens. Of course, I've had to endure 3 full HD crashes with data loss in my virtual lifetime, so I'm more or less immune to this =/

Yeah I have had that happin many times...funny thing was it turned out my light that I use near my PC was to blame...it was such a heater that it would over heat my machine...and I went on got Mother board monitor amd now I can keep an eye on my temp in the machine...so when it reaches near the crashin temp I can just save and give it a rest or try to cool it down
And since then I havnt had a criash this year
