Yes, file are always backed up before I attempt any editing on them.

I think what has happened here (although I don't know why,) is that for some reason the file write failed meaning the NEF became corrupted, although why it has 'vanished' from the directory without trace is a mystery. It wasn't even in the recycle bin. The 'tmp' file that is in the directory is probably used by Capture to hold the file info before it is written. These 'tmp' files are usually deleted by the software automatically so you should seldom if ever see them.

I can't imagine that no one else has had this problem, but perhaps I'm just unlucky.
