PSD file disappeared on its own, recovery softwares can't find it as well, what to do?

Ive been working on one picture for over 2 weeks, always made sure i saved all changes in its psd file on my desktop before closing photoshop. I usually put pc to sleep instead of turning it fully off, but this time i had to reboot it whatever reason i dont remember anymore and next day when i wanted to open the psd file, i realized it's no longer on my desktop.

It wasnt in recycle bin, i looked up file's name in folder browser, i downloaded like 4 recovery tools like Recuva, Disk Drill etc, none found anything, except Disk Drill found an ".ink" file which was this psd's file shortcut, but when clicked, it said the path to the file no longer exists.

In photoshop when trying to open it through "last opened", a  window popped up, saying the file is no longer located in the original path or something like that and after clicking it, it just disappeared from the "last openned" completelly. Photoshop's autorecovery folder is also empty...

I also scanned for possible viruses but none was found. I checked windows defender's history in a case it authomatically deleted the file for any reason, but again, nothing came up.

 

I also found out that my files were never backed up in cloud or anything eventho i remember turning backup on after getting this pc last christmas...

 

I am absolutelly out of ideas now... the only idea i have it to send pc back in time but i dont know it it brings back files as well, some people say yes, some say no...

 

Im using Win 10 and Photoshop 23.1.1 if that helps. Ill be grateful any ideas and help..

Do you have Windows set up with a cloud desktop? In that case storing big files there is pretty risky. Put them in a folder on your disk.
