Part 1. How to Recover Unsaved Photoshop Files
When Photoshop accidentally ends as a result of human errors or software crashes, you may lose PSD files unsaved. Photoshop CS5/CS6 and later versions automatically open the previous PSD file, and you can keep working on it. While if the cache files have been corrupted or replaced, the file might not open. In this case, you can use the following methods to make Photoshop recovery.
Restore Unsaved Photoshop Files from AutoSave
In order to perform Photoshop file recovery from the AutoRecover folder, you need to enable the AutoSave feature at first. Go to check if the option is turned on in Photoshop CC5 or CS 6.
Launch Adobe Photoshop CC > click "Edit " tab > select "Preference" > find "File Handling" > check if the "Automatic save recovery information every * minute" is marked like the screenshot below.
If you have set up the AutoSave function, you can recover the unsaved PSD or PSB file from Photoshop backup files in the AutoRecover folder after a software failure/freeze or accidental closure.
Path for Photoshop AutoRecover: C:/Users/UserName/AppData/Roaming/Adobe Photoshop (CS6 or CC)/AutoRecover
Restore Unsaved Photoshop File from Temp Folder
When you are working on Photoshop files, the application uses the Temp folder to save your work in progress. These files exist in the Temp folder, acting as a backup when Photoshop crashes. Follow the steps below to recover Photoshop files.
1. Go to C:/Users/UserName/AppData/Local/Temp/.
2. Open Temp folder and find the PSD or PSB files.
3. Rename the file extension from .tmp to .psd/.psb/.pbb to complete Photoshop file recovery.
Here is the quick access to how to recover unsaved Photoshop file on Mac if you accidentally closed the software without saving.
Part 2. How to Recover Deleted or Lost PSD Files
