Hello, I worked on a big illustration yesterday. While working on it I wanted to save my artwork and I received the 'This file has been modified outside of Illustrator' notification. I didn't know what it meant. I didn;t know it would have any impact on my saved file, but it did. I opened it again and everything I worked on it gone. I checked illustrators auto save settings, but I can't find the file anywhere. 

 

Can anyone please help me out ?

I'm using illustrator 2021
