Recover Show.

Recommended Posts

HI All,

Is it possible to recover a show from the show cache.

 I Have been working on WO show running windows 7 in a VMware on my mac over the weakened. I had my WO show file and all my media on a USB as we were going to transfer the show to our production PC to day. And i opened up the show on the USB only to find all the work i did last night is missing.


Do I have to start over or can I recover it ?

hi moss~!


Rebuilding from display server show folder:


1. rename the spec file DFC_DATA(no file extension)

2. Zip the file

3. Rename the resulting zip file to ***.watch.



this information from Fredrik~

"invalid file data format. shows make on older versions of watchout.must first be saved using version 2.3"
