Subject:Sound Forge Pro 10 - Crash Recovery

I run into a continuous irritating problem. It is not an issue which prevents Sound Forge from running.

So, I record a voice over session, save the file successfully and close Sound Forge.

When I open Sound Forge the next time for another session, I always get a dialog box which pops up to say:

Files that can be recovered:
unrecognized temp files

I have set in options to hide and delete temp files.
Sound Forge did NOT crash. I closed it.

The software works fine, I have used sound forge for years. I have never had this constant reoccurring issue.

Does anyone encounter this?
Is there a fix?
Is this a known issue. I cannot find any article on it.

Yeah, SF 10 doesn't get rid of temp files like it should. You can remedy this by going to your temp folder and deleting the contents on a regular basis. You can move your temp folder to somewhere easy to find by going to Options-->Preferences-->General and changing the location at the bottom of the window. I go in once or twice per day and clean that temp folder out. Even after half a day of editing, it will have 3,000+ files in it. I've deleted over 1.5Gb of data from that temp folder before, so be sure to check it regularly. I'd imagine it could quickly start to bog down a system.

Hopefully Sony is working on the problem for the next release of SF 10.

Thank you (both) -

I am glad to find out that I am not the only person with the issue. Although for pro audio use, it is rather annoying.

Hopefully, the next revision will correct.

Thank you both for the replies.

Good luck in getting a fix for this. I posted this error six months ago with nary a response from Sony. It's an annoying bug, to say the least.
