I have the same question. I want to use this program or any free program to create a YouTube or facebook video. I'm not making money off my YouTube account and plan on purchasing a program once I find one that I can learn and like. I also had a huge technical issue. I created a video and then my computer did some sort of system update and I lost it just before uploading. Is the file somewhere on my computer or is it lost for good? Any kind of automatic save function for such issues?
