Simply, you need to go to this directory C:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2015\AutoRecover where the Auto Recover folder in present. The  App Data folder by default is hidden and therefore you need to change the folder settings for this purpose. You will find the last used file in the Auto recover folder in .psb format, which you can open up to get back to that particular unsaved file.

Is it possible to recover a photo that you editted through the open button? For example, if you were to open a photo in photoshop, draw something on it, and accidentally clicked do not save when you closed it, would it appear in the Auto Recover file?

Unfortunately, no. "Do not Save" means exactly that. What you did is properly exited the program.

 

Autorecover is for when Photoshop crashes, and did not give you a chance to save or not.

 

You may want to save a copy every 5/10/15 minutes to a backup folder or if on a Mac, use Time Machine.

Hey ya,
Photoshop closed a file on me when I hadn't saved it in psd.  Long story short... I was working on an image, finished it, then changed image size to social media and saved it as a jpeg.... *usually I go back in, undo image size and do my thing... this time (recently upgraded) it just closed the file.

I have seen a way that I might be able to recover expect I don't have autorecover - any further ideas to what I can do pls?
