I can't find my temp files, in the Temp folder of my user there is only one temp file that is a photoshop one and is empty, while on the Data folder there are different temp files of photoshop (why are they here?) and the majority is of months ago even if I've used it recently. Also many sites says that to convert a temp file to a photoshop one you need to change the .tmp to .psd but the .tmp extension does not appear on the file, and if i try to do it, nothing open on my photoshop. What should i do?
I'm on Windows 11 and my photoshop version is Photoshop 23.3.2
You can't convert a temp file to a working Photoshop document. It doesn't work that way.
What is the actual problem you're trying to solve?
How do you do it then?
.tmp files auto remove when you close or quit Photoshop successfully (not crash). They don't stay there permanently.
'many sites says that to convert a temp file to a photoshop one you need to change the .tmp to .psd'
They are wrong
So what is the right way
What are they used for then?
This would be much easier if you just told us what problem you're trying to solve -
I literally asked you how to make temp file into psd one
But why do you need to do this?
To restore a photoshop file that got corrupted after my pc got shut down badly
We're going in circles. Unless Photoshop auto recovery initiated upon relaunch, any .tmp file you find cannot be restored to a .psd format. They cannot be converted to .psd.
The lesson is to save often, or at least once to initiate the auto backup service provided in Photoshop. Otherwise risk losing files.
Okay thank you, I always save a lot, I guess I'll also need to do some backup files next time
