Photoshop File Recovery? AUTORECOVER??

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Anthony David Adams, Apr 7, 2006.

  1. Is it possible to recover work in progress from Adobe after a
    poweroutage?

    I was working on a project (I was saving as much as I should) and the
    power cut for a second. My computer shut down..

    It seems that those files need to exists SOMEWHERE even though they
    were yet to be saved. Is it possible to open the temp files, or
    something?

    Photoshop would really benefit from an AUTORECOVERY feature like MS
    OFFICE -- I have this problem repeatidly.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Anthony

    Unfortunately, there is no Auto-recovery mode in PS. The temp file is the
    Scratch Disk file, and there is no utility to extract anything that might be
    in it.

    Because of the possibility of extreme size of the files in PS, any sort of
    auto-Save would slow things down and probably kick in, just as one is 99% done
    with an intricate Selection. I doubt that we will ever see any form of auto-
    Save, until machines get MUCH faster in every area, but by then, file sizes
    will have increased, as well.

    Sorry for the bad news. The best that one can do is hit Save/Save_As quite
    often.

    Always a good idea, but there can also be the software crash Though I haven't
    had one in decades, the one that I experienced was just before deadline with a
    monster file, ALMOST ready for delivery. Back then, the only way that I could
    do a BU was Save_As, BU to tape, delete the Save_As ver, just to have enough
    HDD real estate to have any Scratch Disk space. Whew, glad that the "bad old"
    days are behind me.
