Photoshop CC 2019 has deleted my psb file.

I'm very angry, Photoshop CC 2019 has deleted my psb file. I've been working many days in one project for a client and today, I decided not to save the file (.psb) because I did not want the new changes. When I did click on "not save" the file did not exist anymore in my computer. The .psb disappeared by magic. I've lost many days of work and I would like to know why Photoshop CC 2019 or Adobe did it.

Does anyone know something about it? Is there any solution?

have you looked to see if it is still available in the dropdown menu for "Open Recent"? Have you looked in the trash to see if the file was actually moved there?

If you did not run a backup, Download ShadowExplorer  may check your drive for stored or shadow copies.

The download and instructions are in the link.

If you have MacOS, we can see what options you have there.

There is apparently an issue with files disappearing when saved to Mac OS desktop. Not Photoshop's doing - apparently something with iCloud or Time Machine or something.

Google it.

We had a similar problem. Apparently when saving the PSB it doesn't always save it automatically in the same location as the PSD. When photoshop asks to save your PSD as a PSB make sure the filelocation is the same. In windows you can do a fileseach typing "*.PSB" and it will list all the PSB's on your drive. That's how we recovered our file.

Same thing happened to me.  I moved the PSD file and now the linked PSB has vanished.  Not in the temp folder or anywhere to be found.  Brutal loss.  Days and days of work.

That is not the same as the OPs description. 

 

How did you move the PSD file? And what was the linked PSB?

 

Days and days of work, without a backup? That's not good practice.
