I was working on a Smartscore .xml file that Smartscore had opened in Finale 25 when Finale suddenly hanged and the computer froze up. I had to restart the computer and now I cannot find the Finale work I was doing. Is there any way to retrieve lost work when Finale freezes up the computer (Windows 7 professional)? Other programs let you recover files -- Windows allows for this -- so why won't Finale allow recovery of work when Finale closes abruptly or hangs? I lost literally hours of of work. I need hardly say this is extremely frustrating!! Is there a temporary file somewhere that I can retrieve? I did not do a save in Finale, but why isn't there the ability to retrieve unsaved work when Finale causes the PC to freeze up?
