[CLOSED] Could not find the permanent hold file after deleted once

Hello folks,

I am to create a permanent hold file in a fex so as to use it later. I am using the APP HOLD command providing the folder name directly (not FILEDEF). While experimenting I deleted the created hold files manually. Now when I create again using the same command it is not working. I cannot see the hold files in the folder.
Can you please suggest where I can check/go wrong.

Regards.

Not sure but can you click on applications and click refresh Descendants and check the masters again

or

create a hold file with different name.

Use WHENCE command to see where the file is.
I am guessing you are saving the file as focus.
Long time ago I have seen when using App hold the mas file was created in baseapp n foc file in the folder specified. So I used app hold meta and app hold data commands and it worked properly.
