Restoring version not fully uploaded to Google drive?

Hi all, 

I think I closed my laptop before the vesion of the project I was working on wasn't fully stored/ uploaded to Google Drive, where I keep my work files. 

Going back to the autosaved version in Adobe Creative Cloud, it was a previous version, with little of the edits saved that was the most time-consuming part and that I'd love to have restored.

 

Is there any way around this? Can I recover the verison I worked on last night in any way?

Did I do a no-no by saving onto Google Drive in the first place?

 

Thanks - very grateful for help!

I apologise in advance if this seems a little harsh, but...

 

Rule 1: You should never, ever save working files onto a remote drive. It's absolutely asking for trouble, and you should only ever put copies there. The only thing that is auto-saved as a backup is the session file, and you might want to look at the backup interval if you lost a lot of edits. If you are downloading work from a remote drive, try not to open it directly in Audition - it can get a bit stroppy if that bit of wet string you're trying to suck the stuff over gets completely waterlogged. Absolutely the best thing to do is to download it as a file onto a local drive, and work on it from there. And if you need to put it back on your cloud storage, copy that local file back, and whatever you do, don't try doing a direct save to the remote location. That one has tripped up a lot of people...

 

No I'm afraid your chances of recovering any of this are zero, if you did as you described.
