While assembling a .pte show, with .jpg and video files, I had manually saved the .pte file, and then tried to publish as an .exe file. The progress window hung/froze at 50% progress. I could not cancel the creation of the .exe file, and could not even close down main Pictures to Exe program. Windows 10 "Task Manager" would also not shut down PTE program window. Eventually I had to Exit Windows 10 in normal method and then reboot. Now I can find no trace of the .pte file which I had manually saved. Should I be able to find a "Recovered" version of my .pte file? I did find the title of the show that looked possibly too small (252mb), but it turned out to be apparently blank, with no evidence of any content. Can I find the temporary or other file that PTE would normally use to open my project next time with the "recovered" suffix? Any other suggestions other than start over?
Since using Version 9, I have had two crashes of Pictures To Exe. In both cases, I have be thankful to find the "recovered" PTE has saved me, for the most part. I'm also thankful that I have thought to see if the three sound tracks still were locked after recovery. In both cases, the locked symbol has disappeared from the recovered PTE file. It is easy to lock again Ctrl+L, but only if the user remembers to look. It would be very helpful if the "recover" process could save the lock status. Often for me, the soundtrack positioning is most critical and very easily damaged by my own mistakes in working with the slides and timeline. Should the "locked" status be preserved with a crash and recover?
