No quit.blend or TMP folder

Hmmm, after accidentally loosing a pile of work (i hate you ctrl-w, much too close to ctrl-q) i went to find the quit.blend file, and there wasnt one! nor was there a tmp folder, using “recover last session” fails, because these dont exist.

any idea what happened?

(btw, i dont think they ever did exist on this box, everything is a fresh install)


i have since set up a tmp folder in the file paths menu, which works fine. but still, why would one not have been created?

I had a similar incident happen to me yesterday. Seemingly, no such file or folder is created until you specify a path for it.

Sorry to hear that you lost so much work . . . mine wasn’t that bad.
