Does Photoshop open the file if you change the suffix to png?
If so you may have mistakenly saved the png with the name »….psd« (which might happen if you clicked on the psd in the save dialog) and destroyed your actual psd.
If you have no backups that would be that then …
and it asks if I wish to save over file with same name
Photoshop always asks you if you want to save the original. You have already saved out a copy, in a different format, that's not the issue.
If you keep that in mind, this becomes easier to keep track of.
The thing is there's not PNG file to be found anywhere even though I saved it as a PNG. The only thing left is the PSD. I do not have a backup :^(
Thanks, I was hoping I could restore it somehow
