Hi,

Is there a way to see the full list recent files for a week? Currently, the max is 20.
I forgot where I saved it because I was juggling several projects.

Is there a way around this?

Hi Ben,

Please have a look here:
https://help.maxon.net/us/index.html#PREFSFILES-PREF_FILE_MAIN_GROUP

Main Menu> Edit> Preferences> Files

Max is 100. To my understanding, this is not a retroactive option.

Perhaps check your back-up folder, there should be a copy of the file. With that, you have the name of the file, and a search should be simple.

My best wishes

Thanks for the response.
I was able to find it by searching for the extension ‘.c4d’ and sorting them based on modified date.
Took some time but definitely much faster than making the project again from scratch.

You’re welcome, Ben.

Yes, that is my way more often than not.

A good naming convention helps, as I saw that you have already some kind of counting numbers in your files as well.

If you have the back up enabled, while using a specific folder for this, you have all extra files in a local place.

My best wishes
