Restore content of deleted transcripts

Modified on Fri, 26 Apr 2024 at 01:21 PM

MAXQDA creates from version 24.2 copies of your manually created transcripts in a 15-minute time interval while the transcription mode is active. If you by accident delete the text of your transcript (e.g. by unintentionally pressing a keyboard shortcut), you can use this file to restore the text of your transcript.

MAXQDA saves the text of your transcript in the following path and saves it for 30 days. The name of the document contains a timestamp of the creation time:

Win: C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\MAXQDA\MAXQDA24\Temp

Mac: /Users/USERNAME/Documents/MAXQDA/MAXQDA24/Temp

Your transcript is saved as Word file with the name of your transcript. Unfortunately, it does not contain the timestamps. You have to add them after importing manually.

You can import this file back to MAXQDA if needed.
