Error: not an adventure file

EEEEeeeeek..... not come across this before!!

Yesterday i saved and closed adrift as normal. This morning it says that my saving "workstation.taf" is not an adventure file. I have tried an old 'taf' file - which works ok.

Please tell me I havn't lost all this work???? :cry:

If you haven't tried saving the game since this error message popped up, you might be able to rename your ".bak" file to a ".taf" file and save everything. The ".bak" file should be in the same directory as your ".taf" file.

As always, thank you David. I don't know what I would do without you. :)

You're welcome. I once spent ages rewriting parts of a game after the file became corrupted, only to later on discover the original was still there and all I needed to do was rename something.

A few months ago I realised that my game was in the region of 80Mb. What i did to arrive at this i don't know, but of course this may be the true size.
However, over the last couple of days I have changed the title of the adventure, and moved it from Documents to the C drive; program files. This
