Solid Edge bug

So, I was just wondering, who else has had this happen to them:

Say you are peacefully working in a Solid Edge assembly and suddenly the smallest of error message windows appears bearing the text: "Cannot access document". Whereupon you notice that the floppy disk on the left of the menu bar has greyed out. Promptly all the blood drains from your face. You open an explorer browser and check the folder where you are currently working from, and yes, your assembly, the one you are working on and are looking at on your screen, the fruit of many hours of labour, is no longer there. You try a "Saveas", with no result. It is gone, as if your work were nothing but a dream, a figment of your imagination.

So who?

Yeah. Thought so.

(Speak up you lonely wanderer from the future who lands upon this page many many days, months, years from now thinking this post is long forgotten and best not commented on, speak up and share your frustration) (PLEAAAASSSE!)

My coworkers know what I'm talking about but no-one here has the answer
(other than Solid Edge is a bloody thief and a dirty old liar, thats what.)
