I did as I always do - Ctrl+N and type notes. After a while I thought it was
time to save, so I pressed Ctrl+S. The file pane opened, turned white, and I
clicked cancel. Then NPP turned white and I got the "hour glass" pointer.
My current theory is that NPP/explorer.exe sent a request to all storage devices,
and my external USB harddisk was slow in responding. It can also be a bug, of
course. What I did next was to see if it was available, Windows+Run, then I
typed h: + Enter. Whereupon Windows hung so hard I couldn't even re-start
explorer.exe (my fix of choice for example when a program refuses to close
Now, I have XP 64-bit, and at a glance I can't find out whether my 5.1.2 Unicode
is for 64-bit or 32-bit. The zip is 3.10 MB (3,258,582 bytes), if that helps.
Any recommendations for a version that is proper for my would be appreciated.
But right now, I'm just looking for a way to
a) somehow find any temporary file the text was saved in, before it was Saved
As..., so to speak. Possible? If not, would this be a possible new feature -
i.e. saving to temp before opening the file dialog, just in case that fails?
b) auto-backup every n minutes, for example with a plug-in, so it doesn't happen
again. Harddisk space is cheap. I don't know what the backup function I enabled
does - is that to stop you from overwriting existing files only/rollback?
