Sound Forge Crash

I have been working on a soundtrack since yesterday in S/F 9 and duly saved it & reloaded it to-day to continue working on it. After about 2 hours I saved it again as I had forgotten to earlier, but it then crashed to a faint/pale screen and I had no option but to close it.

Now the whole file is missing which is weird as I would expect the original saved version from yesterday to still be there. Is there some where in S/F where it creates a backup file ?

I went into program files but could not find anything relevant. Not a happy chappy as it looks like I have lost about 4 hours of editing.

Re: Sound Forge Crash

Look in SF's "Temporary files and record folder" for the <*.tmp> recovery files.. which by default is created in "AppData\Local\Sony\Sound Forge Pro\9.0"
This can be changed (or copy/see file path) in the SF menu "Options> Preferences> General tab> Temporary files and record folder"
For instance my SF-10 temp folder is: "C:\Users\Rick\AppData\Local\Sony\Sound Forge Pro\10.0\"
