EDGE Job Files
There are typically 5 files associated with every EDGE Job that you create: I’m using X:\Edge Jobs as an example of a network location.
- The job file, X:\EDGE Jobs\myjob.EDGE10Job
This file is created when you create a new job, it is written to only when you close the job. This file becomes the temp job when the job is reopened.
- The job lock file, X:\EDGE Jobs\myjob.EDGE10JobLock
This file is created when a job is created or reopened, this file goes away when a job closes successfully.
- The temp job file, C:\EDGE Jobs\Backup\myjob.EDGE10Job
This file is created when the job is first created, and is accessed/written to every time the job auto-saves or hard saves. This file over writes the job file and becomes the backup job file when the job is closed. When a job closes successfully the temp file will go away.
- The job log file, C:\EDGE Jobs\Backup\myjob.EDGE10JobLog
This file is created when the job is first created, and is accessed/written to every time the job auto-saves or hard saves or is closed or reopened.
- The backup job file, C:\EDGE Jobs\Backup\Backup of myjob.EDGE10Job
This file is created from the temp job file when a job is closed.
