PS 2020: Saved file reverted to older version on its own. Lost a whole day's work.

I lost all my work from yesterday.

 

I have a PSD file with multiple Artboards and Smart Objects. I was working on one of the Smart Object all day yesterday. When I closed the file at the end of the day I remembered to save the Smart Object and the parent PSD. I also saved regularly throughout the day, on both files.

 

Today I opened PS 2020 and the files have reverted to the previous version. All my work is gone. I've checked the temp folder where the Smart Object is saved, there are no other files. The AutoRecover folder is empty. 

 

I have autosave set for every 5 min.

I didn't save the file to cloud. It's not saved to external hard drive. It's just in a normal folder on my hard drive.

I don't have Time Machine active.

 

Has this happened to anyone else?

What happened to my saves throughout the entire day yesterday, and how can I get it back?

What was AutoSave for if it didn't save all the changes that I did yesterday?

This just happened to me. In trying to search for an answer I found your post. Did you have to redo all your work or was there a way to recover it?

We are having exakt this issue from time to time, almost thought we had gone crazy over here. We have saved images to one location, then copied it to another location. Next day the work copy on the first location is reversed to it's original untouched state, but the copied version is still the latest. We can see that the work copy has been altered at an later time compared to the copy, meaning that photoshop does something to images hours after it has been saved and closed in Photoshop. We are using Photoshop 2022 when experiencing this.

 

It doesn't seem to be any difference working on a local volume or towards a NAS storage.

Maybe this has something to do with the autosave feature, we have three retouch operators and the one who has experienced this issue had the autosave enabled but the two others had not. I have disabled the autosave on that computer also and we will monitor this very close for the next couple of weeks.
