I have many projects that I switch back and forth between. Some of the files for said projects are located on network drives that need to be manually connected to upon startup. I have noticed that if a needed network is not connected when you open a project that has files already open in it, the file that you are currently viewing is cleared of contents. Once connecting the drive needed, it will ask to reload the file, I choose yes to reload and it's still empty and it also clears the file on the network. Luckily, most of the time the files are in version control so I can easily revert back, but some cases have caused me to lose a files contents and start over.
Is this a bug? I know I can use due diligence to always make sure I am connected to the drives, however, what happens in the scenarios where you can't always 'prepare' for a network to not be connected?
Thanks in advance!
