#1 Blue square icon in one of my files

Posted by: Esgrimidor | Date: 05/13/2017 10:40 | IP: IP Logged

Yesterday I got a general totally freeze in the pc and I have to turn off the pc and on again.

I lose access to a project (a group of files) because don't open any files.

Then I tried to reopen one by one and one of them present a blue square icon in the left tab. And I see hexadecimal characters.

How can I put in normal mode ?
Have the file corrupted ?

Best Regards

Hello

If PSpad opens your file as hexa (in HEX editor), it means your file was corrupted by hang of your system and there is no text content.

Restore your files from backup and continue your work. I hope you are creating backup regularly.
If your system hangs, it can damage files you are working on it - rewrite content of files with garbage

I think is solved.
I deleted the corrupted file and the corrupted project.
I create a new project and give the same name with the same files components.
I Create a new file.

I don't remember any lost data, so I supposed I haven't lost any data.

Best Regards

I make backup with an external program.
When you say backups is possible with pspad ?

Yes, there is a basic backup support. Open program settings and look at backup page
