    Backup 101:

    Exporting your site to template is a good thing, It is NoF's version of
    Backing up your site however you must do this manually as there is no prompt
    for you to do this as you'd get from say, quickbooks or some other program
    that has a database. NoF makes backups of the .NOD file which should keep
    you from loosing to much data. I'd recommend frequent saves of your site as
    you develop (ctl+s) and if you do get a crash you may only loose a few
    minutes work. After any major revision you should export to template this
    way if you do have a major crash and you cannot recover from the backup of
    the .NOD file you still have your site and can be up and running again
    within 1 min and what ever changes you need to make / add.

    Hello Mike,

    Did you solve your problem yet? I had the same thing happen to me lately. Thank heavens for the versioning. I download the last version into the /Template directory, renamed the current directory where all the website info is (for the NOD you are having problem with) and started a new session of NOF. When it starts I just select the template and give it the same name as the one I had the problem with. I then copy in any assests that I might want to have included.

    It seems that the ZIP files in the versioning are just like templates (probably actually are), so I was covered that way.

    Hope it helps,

    1. Fusion crashes with the project and can not be opend again
    2. Npower crashes
    3. all backups are crashing !!!!!!!!

    Contrary to what might be inferred from the responses above, this problem isnt limited to opening older files in a newer version of NOF.

    I had this happen to me with a file created in NOF v. 11 after the program crashed. When I re-started the program and open the file, got this message:

    Runtime Error!

    Program: [file location]

    This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.
    Trying to open it again, before shutting itself down NOF unhelpfully kicked in with the following error message:

    This file contains an instability. If this file was created in an older version of NetObjects Fusion, it is likely that the instability was introduced by that version. Please use recover.txt, located in your /NetObjects Fusion folder, to lean an alternative method of opening this file.
    As previously mentioned, there is no recover.txt in the NOF folder.

    Id sure like to know what the alternative method of opening a file damaged in this way is. Not only has this problem (whatever it is) made my working file unusable, but has also similarly wrecked the most recent ones in the Recovery folder.

    Very, VERY frustrating.
