Recovering unsaved file



  • My computer crashed and I lost text that was in an open Notepad++ window, unsaved. Is there any way I can get it back?

    I found this location listed as the dumping place for backups

    C:\Users{username}\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++\backup

    but I have no N++ in Roaming.

    I also found

    C:\Users{username}\AppData\Local\Temp\N++RECOV

    But I have no N++RECOV in that folder.

    Please help, lost some VERY important stuff.



  • I realized why I don’t have those folders, it’s because I use the portable version of N++. There’s a backup folder in the N++ folder, but there’s only one much older file in there.

    Is there ANY way I can get this back?
