You can get the SAS Code back even If you haven’t saved it

If you happen to be one of the unlucky programmers who lost the SAS code … because you didn’t save it. There is solution for that…. SAS System automatically takes the backup of the SAS code for every 10 minutes (default);

Just look in the following location:

C:\Documents and Settings\Programmer Name\Application Data\SAS\EnhancedEditor\

Note: Replace “Programmer Name” with your login user id of the System you are using;
If you go the specified location above, you will see a copy of the unsaved version of the SAS code.
It will be quick if you search files with the extension name ‘.$AS’ (extension for auto-saved SAS codes)

If you want, you can also change the 10-minute time interval for Auto save…. Go to…

Tools Options Preferences Edit.

In the preferences dialog box, make sure to the change the time under Autosave every …. And click on OK ...
