I recently sent my Adobe cc 2014 to auto save every 5 minutes because of a recent experience of losing quality editing time. Premiere crashed on my PC again and I'm trying to locate my auto save files. They are not in the folder I created my original project in? I tried opening premiere and loading my last project worked on and my most recent edits are not on the timeline!?! I have a deadline coming up and I would appreciate any advice/solutions
Check the Scratch Disk dialog box where Premiere puts its auto save.
If it is set to 5 minutes you should have seen the save window pas by every 5 minutes. If not it did not save your project.
Then you need to restart Premiere or even beter your pc.
On a side note don't rely solely on auto save.
Make a habit of making a Save A Copy to another drive every so often.
