I ran a reg cleaning program and suddenly all my drawings .......

My drawings no longer have the .rmdc on the end. They can be searched with rmdc but they bring up an error page. Also when I try to open them they bring up a "save" page and my Canvas Browser version no longer has a load on it. I can only save to web site or as a png. What can I do? I just ;lost so many unfinished drawings! Now I lost about 6-8 more, one I finished  but my computer was moving so slow had to save it-thus the reason for running the stupid darn program. Help! I have so many hours invested and you know no drawing is ever the same the second try it  and who wants to anyway?

Thanks So Much!

I did a system restore and load came back and I was able to load my drawings again. The rmdc did not return though I search them by typing rmdc in the box and find them also, they load although rmdc is not visible. Hope this helps other

the .rmdc is just the filetype. It's usually hidden, you may want to create a separate folder to store them in, rather than just a downloads folder. Creating backups also helps if you have a flash drive or external hard drive.

It seems like your operating system has the option selected to not show file extensions on file names...

You can change this setting in windows like this:

The best way to support our community is to just keep drawing - even if it's for fun and not serious. Another way is by taking time to occasionally rate and comments drawings by new or learning artists.
