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?
