Just did about 2 hours of work on a project. Suddenly premiere crashes, but I'm not very worried since I had seen it had autosaved a couple of minutes prior. When I opened my project file again, only the manual safe I made on the first clip showed up, and the autosave was nowhere to be found. Kind of annoying to see 2 hours of work go down the drain, but is there some folder I should check or a setting? Any form of help is appreciated😊

In your Project Settings dialog, or Production Settings dialog if you're working in Productions (which I highly recommend for everyone large or small shop) ... the Scratch Disk tab, is where you set where Autosaves go. So you can check that and see where they are saved on your machine, and change it if you want to.

 

I always set those where I want them, as the defaults are not where I want them.
