Chasys Draw IES Help:

The Autosave Feature

Asynchronous Multi-Tracking Auto-Save

Image editing can be tedious work and as such it can be very annoying if you lose your work due to a power outage or system error. Chasys Draw IES Artist helps you avert possible disaster by automatically saving copies of your work at regular intervals. These are only discarded if you properly shutdown the program. Should a power outage occur, the copies will still be on disk and will be detected next time you start Chasys Draw IES Artist.

The auto-save feature is asynchronous, which is to say that it does not interrupt your work; it operates in the background without your knowledge. This makes it very fast and reliable.

The exact frequency of autosave is depends on a variety of factors, including the size of the image, disk speed and the power state of the computer. When Chasys Draw IES Artist detects that it is running on a computer with a battery, the autosave cycle is slowed down to save on battery power and to take advantage of the lower risk of power-loss.


System Requirements

The auto-save buffers (space on your hard-drive where Chasys Draw IES Artist stores auto-save information) can be quite large - sometimes as large as 500MB per session. For this reason, you should ensure that you have adequate free space on your installation drive (or custom TEMP drive if you've defined one), especially if you work on several images simultaneously. I recommend 2GB free space on a fast hard-drive.

Chasys Draw IES Artist utilizes the system drive, i.e. the drive with your "Windows" and "Program Files" folders. To get the best performance out of your machine with this or any other software, this drive should be fast and must have a reasonable amount of free space on it.
