Since Render runs on a computer on Windows, there are a few things you can do to help Render run smoothly:

  • Before starting work and after finishing work, do a sync.
  • Configure should do a web sync every day if possible. If internet does not allow, try to do a web sync every week.
  • Before taking a break, close Render and put your computer to sleep. (You don't need to shut it down unless it's the end of the day.)
  • At the end of the day, shut down Windows completely.
  • Be careful when operating on battery power. If the computer runs out of battery and turns off while Render is open, work could be lost or files could be corrupted.
  • Check for Windows updates weekly or monthly and install all  updates as soon as you can. 
  • When prompted for a new Render version, install the Render update on all computers as soon as possible.
