Hey guys- 

I believe I may be up poo-poo creek without a paddle, but I'm reaching out to you in hopes of a solution.

 

My problem is actually a two-part problem because it seems two BIG mistakes were made:

 

Problem 1:  I just completed a project this morning.  I had been making edits to the end, and only viewing the final 15-20% for the last few hours.  When I zoomed out to view the entire project, the first 80+% was missing.  I have absolutely no idea how this was erased.  I tried checking my history but it wouldn't let me roll back far enough to recover it.  I double-checked to make sure I didn't accidentally start a new sequence. No luck.  ....and no explination.  

 

Problem 2:  I went to the autosave folder, but somehow, my maximum autosaves were set to only 2 every 8 minutes.  As most of you know, this means my autosaves were being erased and replaced every eight minutes.  I did not make these changes to my autosave settings.  If I did, it was by mistake.  

 

Question:  is there any possible way to recover this project?  Are the autosave files which were "kicked" accessable?  Any guidence would be greately appreciated as I am truly devisated over this. 

 

Thank you
