    Computer slept without me saving... then crashed. Recovery possible?

    Hullo!

    I did a gig two days ago. Made about six drawings. Didn't save ANY of them.

    At the end of the gig I was supremely desperate to get to the toilet. So I didn't save. Instead, I put my computer to 'Sleep', aiming to get back to it when I got home.

    As Murphy dictates, what could go wrong DID. The computer obviously didn't sleep. It simply chewed the battery until it died.

    So, when I switched it on, there were no files to be found.

    I'm hoping that there's some spot on the harddrive that contains some sort of disaster recovery versions of the pics.

    Where should I look for these? If I find them, how do I get them back into shape? Aaaargh. Desperate. Client wants the pics.

    Unfortunately I doubt it was able to save if the machine suddenly powered down. The app does do a crash recovery file on Windows, but if you restart and you don't get prompted to reload it, none was able to be saved.

    I don't think you'll be able to get the data back, sorry!

    Thanks Matt. Next time I'll exercise better bladder control.
