HELP! .fla file has gone missing! - Adobe Flash, Flex & Director

I've been working on a Flash movie for days and my latest session locked up on me. The file wouldn't let me save. "Unable to save doent". So, since I'd just saved about 10 minutes previously, thought I could live without the last edits - thus closed everything out and rebooted. Now my .fla is MISSING. Gone. Nada. Ziltch. I know it was there, because I was able to publish - it went to a file of the same name. And I'd opened the file on numerous occasions to add to it....

    Default HELP! .fla file has gone missing!

    I've been working on a Flash movie for days and my latest session locked up on me. The file wouldn't let me save. "Unable to save doent". So, since I'd just saved about 10 minutes previously, thought I could live without the last edits - thus closed everything out and rebooted.

    Now my .fla is MISSING. Gone. Nada. Ziltch. I know it was there, because I was able to publish - it went to a file of the same name. And I'd opened the file on numerous occasions to add to it....

    My anti-virus downloads are up to date, and I have run a scan without problems. I've done a network wide search and checked the recycle bin. Gone.

    What's the deal? Has anyone else ever come across this? I know I can import the .swf file but everything is lost. My scenes and buttons and sounds.... I'm heartsick.

    Please! Someone tell me all is not lost and that they've had this happen to them and figured it out.

    Was the FLA on a network volume, such as a Windows share?

    If so, that's your problem. Flash (like many, many applications) cannot reliably work on files over the network. You should only edit files that are on your *local* hard drive.

    You can find a couple of threads on this topic.

    If you can't find the file, it's probably gone for good.
