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.
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..
Yeppers. Bout 5-7 times while I was workin on Abode on different things. Wallpapers, coloring, cuttin out edges of images. Went bonkers cause I aint got a habit of savin images while im workin on em. i dun save em till im completely done with one part.
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...
yes, deer god, YES T_T after like 10 hours of not saving, the stupid thing CRASHES. god DAMN i hate when it does that!! last time it happened, though, i took a screenshot awhile back and thusly didn't have to do -too- much work over again, although the quality sucked..
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
