Adobe Captivate creates a backup file for your project when you save it. When you re-save the project, the changes are saved to the backup file too. The backup file is saved with a .bak extension.

If your project file gets corrupt, use the backup file to recover your project. Rename the backup file using a .cptx extension, and open it. Changes that you made after the last save, however, are not reflected in the backup file.

The provision to create a backup file is enabled by default in the Preferences dialog box. You can choose to disable the option if it interferes with the speed of saving the project.

Note:

The size of the backup file might be larger than that of your main project.

  1. Select Edit > Preferences (Windows) or Adobe Captivate > Preferences (Mac OS).

  2. In the Preferences dialog box, select General Settings from the Global menu.

  3. Select Generate Project Backup.
