A couple of times now I have had a save error with version 3.5.5. (Probably because of network issues - I don’t have the full details of our IT setup but I believe my working location is on a network, not directly on my machine.)
Thankfully I haven’t lost my mockups because Balsamiq warned me it couldn’t save and suggested I save to another file with a new name.
However the original file is giving me a permissions problem now as it cannot be opened, moved, deleted or have its name changed. I also tried using ‘Save Project As’ from the newly saved file but when I tried overwriting the original it failed with an IOError. (I can send a screenshot of this error if needed. I don’t think I could send you my project files though sorry.) I’m using Windows 7 Enterprise.
So this isn’t an emergency, but it’s a bit annoying as each time this happens I have to start using a different filename or working location for my project, as I can’t get rid of the corrupted files, which slightly impacts my workflow outside Balsamiq.
Perhaps you know of a workaround in Windows that I should try to get rid of these files?
