What is “Temp File Save”?


“Temp File Save” is a function to save the original PDF file in the specified folder automatically when you overwrite the PDF file after editing it with PDF Edit of ScandAll PRO or ScanSnap Manager for fi Series.
The maximum disk space of the folder for saving the original file is 2 GB. This storage space is shared by all users in the computer.
This function is available in ScandAll PRO V2.0.17 or later or ScanSnap Manager for fi Series 1.0.4 or later.
When you are using ScandAll PRO V2.1 or later or ScanSnap Manager for fi Series 1.0.7 or later, the maximum storage space can be individually specified by each user.

Name of the saved file
For example, when a file named “abcd1234.pdf” is overwritten on March 12, 2015 at 13:56:47, the name of the saved file will be as follows:

ScandAll PRO: V2.0.17 or later 20150312135647_ScandAllPDFEditor_abcd1234.pd~
ScandAll PRO: V2.1 or later abcd1234_20150312135647sss_ScandAllPDFEditor.pd~
ScanSnap Manager for fi Series: V1.0.4 or later 20150312135647_ScandAllPDFEditor_abcd1234.pd~
ScanSnap Manager for fi Series: V1.0.7 or later abcd1234_20150312135647sss_ScanSnapPDFEditor.pd~

Note:
 The “sss” represents milliseconds.

To restore the original file, copy the saved file to other folder and rename the extension from “.pd~” to “.pdf”.
