Corrupted pcb file


#1

Just made my first pcb and spent quite a lot of time on it, learning KiCad. I wanted to open it today and get Error loading board file: Expecting “’)’” in input/source line 6049, offset 1

;(

do I have to start over?


#2

Found a kicad_pcbbak file in the same directory, renamed it and it seems to contain a recent version. Ouff


#3

Euhm, maybe start thinking about making regular backups?

Simplest way to make backups is to make zip archive of the whole project directory combined with the date in ISO8601 format.

A more elaborte way would use git or similar.
