About an hour ago, my Illustrator crashed (which it always does once in a while) along with some files I had been working on, and I wasn't concerned since I typically am always able to open the recovered files upon relaunch. However, the file that had important work in it was saved as a cloud document, and this is my first time using Illustrator cloud documents. When I relaunched the program, I was not able to find that particular recovered file anywhere, and the last version that had been saved to the cloud was from seven days ago, meaning I lost a ton of work I had done since then. I know it's ultimately my fault for not saving properly, but if it was a cloud document I don't understand why it had not been autosaving for that entire time, or why it was not at least saved as a local recovery file??? Is there anything I can do now to recover that data or is it lost forever?
The document exists, but the last saved version is from 7 days ago. This wouldn't be the case if autosave had been working as intended. There was also no recovered version of the document upon relaunch of the program.
