Im going to assume you have

a) tried opening your incrimental saves.

b) installed a copy of vanilla max and re-opened your scenes and saved out as a 2012 version... (alt temp uninstall service pack)

donvella what do you mean by alt temp uninstall service pack?
I'm actually trying to uninstall the service pack but it's not appearing in the program list of w7. Weird.

I had issues in max were my last 5 incremented saves were messed up after a crash, and there was no service pack or anything, It just started saving bad files that led to a crash.

Luckily I have it set to auto increment on save and I press the save button like a mad man thus i had a lot of good ones to work with.

Also i have auto backup/save set so it saves every few mins automatically in the autobak folder.

Do take the proper precautions, u can't fully trust max or any other 3d app with your work!
