I was just using elements 9, it decided to freeze and shut down, I re opened it and all my work gone, the only save is the original one 3 days back. I've been working countless hours on this and every time I make a change it comes up with a bar saying saving changes. Where on earth has my work gone?!?!?!? HELP ME PLEASE
What operating system are you on? Are you unable to even browse to it?
Have you run Malware Bytes? This really sounds like a virus or malware attack. The program won't just eat a project.
I'm on my mac, I can find the file but its from a save a few days ago. I haven't run that i'll have a look. I never pressed save because it always came up with saving changes automatically
You never saved or named your project?!
Hopefully you'll be able to locate and pull up an auto-save. But in the future, I'd definitely recommend you name your project and save it regularly. Auto backup are really last resort emergency recoveries.
