Some time ago, a poster on the RoboHelp forum had issues with temporary files not being cleand up by RoboHelp.

I just released a small update to the RoboHelp ExtendScript Library. You can now use methods and shorthands while working with scripting events. And I've included a function to get the text from a token, such as retrieving the text from a paragraph.
I use Google Drive. A lot. I place personal documents, photo's and RoboHelp projects in Drive. It works great as I have access to files and documents on all computers. The one downside about Google Drive is the enormous number of conflicted copies. When working with RoboHelp, Google Drive can't keep up with the changes, resulting in hundreds of conflicted copies.

I just updated the script to recover a RoboHelp project from a WebHelp or WebHelp Pro output. The script will now replace the Mini TOC with a snippet with a Mini TOC placeholder inside.
