How to recover unsaved work RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sadly, I didn't have auto saved turned on. (I do now!)

    MS Project 2013 quit and I lost HOURS worth of work that wasn't saved.  Any suggestions on if/how I can recover this file?

    Thank You!

  • NicoleFoxTB,

    Sorry but there is no way to recover something that isn't there. The best suggestion I can offer is to pull up your last saved version and start from there.

    Just on the off chance, even though you didn't have auto-save turned on for Project, is there any possibility that your system has a backup feature that might have saved all your files sometime during your editing? Not likely but you might look into that.

    I don't use auto-save but I always do manual saves about every 10 minutes or more often if I've been doing heavy editing with any application. Working with computer software is a lot like Las Vegas, never bet (edit) more than you are willing to lose.

    John
