I nearly had the same thing happen again a moment ago. I had another crash but somehow nothing seems to be lost, though there was no “Crash Recover” dialog and I don’t remember saving the session manually.
I’ve started making a bash script that’d do this for me actually.
I’ll inspect that Lua script - thank you.
I guess the word “autosave” that I used is a bit misleading. What I meant is saving current session status to disk in order to make it possible to recover from a crash. For some reason Ardour’s automatic backups seem to often not save anything unless I touch audio regions (record, edit etc.) - if I work only with MIDI regions, plug-in settings or automation (which often is majority of the time) the backups seem to be almost never created (so cannot be recovered from). I also don
I saw these .pending files a few times - what can I do with them? Does Ardour automatically show a “Crash Recovery” dialog if such a file is present when opening a session?
And what about the .bak files? Is it possible there is a backup copy that Ardour didn’t use when re-opening a session after a crash? I’ll start watching these files when I have another crash happening.
