Default photoshop temp files???


I'm using PhotoShop CS2 on Windows XP. I created something, then had to end the process before I could save. Now I want to to get that content back, and I'm sure that it's stored in some temp folder...but I don't know the file's location nor how to open it.

Can someone help me out?

Unhappy Temp file is GONE

Sorry. You cannot restore it.

Temp files are deleted when the file closes.
Try poking into the HISTORY palette to see how
many of the previous states were saved.

Default Yes u can!!

Actually there is a option to restore the photoshop temp file just after the crash deleted the temp file.

Just look for a restore application that will restore deleted files/folders from your system.

On windows the file it's here c:/document and settings/USERNAME/localsettings/temp/ something like that, just replace the "USERNAME" text with your own username.

Now If some knows how to read/open the temp file will be a big help, This file has a lot of info, not just the photoshop file you was workning on, it contains the history steps and more.

If I can find a way to open and extract the psd file it will be a big help!!!

I've tried this in earlier versions of Photoshop adn it doesn't work. If the file is not saved, essential "end file" pieces of code are missing and it will just be considered corrupted.

Game over, You Lose!
