Recovering Unsaved Work?

I just lost about 2 or 3 hours of work. When i Rendered my cp froze up so I had to close blender. can I recover what I lost.

Man this is pissin me off.

check the /tmp/ directory, Blender automatically saves some items here. Make a copy of them, and then open each *.blend file until you find the good temporary file! This is at least true for linux systems, but I don’t know for other OSes like Windows, and I don’t know when lender writes such files, but hopefully you’ill find something interesting that will save your day.


Have you tried File>Recover Last Session?

ouch. let that be a lesson to save often, and always before rendering a large project …

You might want to check out the AutoSave feature in the User Preferences window.
