Backup file


Hello! I have problem with my backup file. It automatically saved my project but I want to use the previous file. (before the last backup file)


I don't think that is possible unless you use the Mac Time Machine backup functionality or a similar set up. The Archicad .bpn file will only be the last state of the project prior to the most recent save.

That can be done if you copied the project file with backup to a new folder and opening the project from this copy that will let you save a new backup file different from the older one which gives you the ability to retrieve the desired file version and start building upon in case you need.
