HELP NEEDED!  I have been working for 3 days in a "new doc". Of course i have saved several times (control+s)

but i do not remember it asking me about file name or folder. Today my comp crashed and i do not find the file. Just found 2 files (a tmp and one with no extension)

: one with 174 mg and another one with almost 2 gb. Is there any possibility to recover my work? Photoshop did not oppened a thing when i restarted comp

 

Thanks in advance

    Use Windows File Explorer and search for files modified on the date you saved the docoument on.

    Try this: Press the F2 key and add the extension .psd (don't forget the dot)

    Did the computer crash while you were working on the psd?  If you had checked "automatically save recovery info" check the scratch drive for a file PSAutoRecover.

    how can i do that???

    Open the scratch drive and look for entry PSAutoRocover or search for this file.  But first look in Edit/file handling and see if feature enabled, and you were working on it long enough for feature to trigger.

    The TMP file is your Scratch Disk file, and cannot be "recovered" to an Image file.

     

    Your second file might be almost anything. Though designed more for video files, both G-Spot and MediaInfo (both free file info utilities), CAN read several Still Image file types, and might help point out what that file (the one with no extension) really is. OTOH, as it could be almost anything, it could be that there is no header info in the file, for either to read.

     

    Good luck,

    PS - Before I did much additional work, I would investigate WHY your computer shut down. If you are on a PC, I would go into Event Viewer, at the time of the shutdown, and see if you can track down any warning, or error messages, in both the System and Applications Tabs. I am pretty sure that a Mac has similar, but have not a clue where, or even what it would be called.

    You should be able to find the file you had saved via Control S.  Don't give up on that.

     

    How did you initially open the file?  Was it an existing PSD file already on disk?

    The details as you have described them don't make sense. 

     

    Didn't you notice whether it saved successfully or emitted any error message?

     

    Photoshop won't just save a file somewhere on its own.  It just doesn't work that way.

     

    Search your computer for files modified in the proper time frame.
