Been working on a project all day and for some reason the main comp (Basically the main project) was erased and I somehow pressed "Save" before closing. Any way of recovering that file? I have some of the project from the "Auto-Save" folder but it sets back to a good 5 hours (so a lot missing). Any tips on where to look would be highly appreciated!
Have you looked at the auto-saves?
If it's there you can select it in the project window, then File -> Dependencies -> Reduce Project it will collect only the relevant files for that comp and delete everything else. Then you can save it somewhere, open your project (the one with the comp deleted) and import the new saved file and your comp and associated media will be there and editable.
