Re: [Gimp-user] Crash

I was recently working on a big project of mine using GIMP. I had spent 5 hours straight
working on it, saving it every 5 minutes, and then GIMP crashed and lost everything but
a few layers. This was not a saving issue because the layers that stayed were made at
completely different times. I lost pretty much all my work and I am furious. I don't
have time to do it all over again. I'm pretty sure there is no way of bringing it back.
GIMP is a wonderful drawing program and I use it all the time, but this was just too
overboard for me. It crashes almost everytime I use it but all those other times,
everything was saved alright and everything was fine. This time one of my best drawings
was lost and there is no way of bringing it back (trust me, I've tried everything). I am
letting you know because I don't want this to happen to anyone else and (even though I
am certain nothing can fix it) is there anyway to bring my drawing back? I put my best
work into it and it makes me furious that its gone. Please, if anyone knows how to bring
it back, please help me. This drawing meant a lot to me.

You might want to upload the xcf somewhere if you want people to help
with trying to get it back.

Howver, being able to keep a few layers (as opposed to completely losing
the whole file) does sound very odd (your harddrive isn't making strange
ticking noises, is it?).

In any case, if you're getting a lot of crashes, do ensure you're
running the newest version (click Help→About, should say 2.6.11). You
might also want to invest in some more RAM (I've got 3GB, haven't had a
GIMP crash in over a year).
