I know what the answer will probably be to this. But as I was saving something in photoshop, I went to save something in illustrator that I had traced from an image I had just dragged from the net and it crashed on me and ive just lost two hours of work. I know theres obviously a lesson to be learnt here and save regualarly but.... I'm sure its happened to all of us. But anyway... is there by any chance a temporary saved file illustrator mite have made or something? I know when indesign crashed on me before it recovered my work.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You may find yourself in luck, though. Look for a file ending .tmp in the folder where your file is saved. If not there, it may be in the trash in a folder called “Recovered files”. Also try AI Viewer Tool from http://www.ai.viewertool.com/

    Our graphics person has had the same thing happen. He now save a lot more frequently. He has lost as much as 6-7 hours of work and has had to do it all over again. Hopefully the link provide in the other post will help.
