I don't know of anyway to recover your lost work this time. Be greatful
you had a backup from yesterday.
As a consolation, for the future, there is an extension that once
installed allows you to specify a period of time (hours/ minutes) to
auto save the file for you.

Thanks for the reply, I am indeed very grateful that I backed up the file yesterday, things could have been much worse.
Thanks for the link, but I'm not keen on using it as 1. I do save my files very regularly - in fact that's what got me into trouble as the power went out in the middle of a save. I'm sure if I hadn't have been saving it I would have still lost the changes I made since that last save but the file would have been alright and 2. it actually takes about 1 minute to save the file, so I can see an auto save messing up my work flow.
I hope I can save someone from my fate by this posting - I'm not suggesting doing a complete system back-up everyday, but if you're working on a project, back up your file at least once a day people!
