Restore temp item - Please Help..
Yair B last edited by
Usually when I reopen Notepad++ he shows me the last item (file/page) I worked on, even though it’s not saved on disk.
My computer crashed and died and I want to restore my item that I guess was on a temp file - and NOT saved by me.
So can you please tell me where I can find in the file directory this item-file?
I really want to restore my data…

@Yair-B Look in the
%APPDATA%\Notepad++\backupfolder. If you are using a portable version of Notepad++ then its backup folder will be a sub-folder of where you are running that copy of Notepad++ from.
The backup files are named
filenameis the original file name, and
YYYY-MM-DD-HHMMSSis the time stamp of when the backup of that file was created.

There’s also the
%AppData%\Local\Temp\Notepad++ RECOVfolder. The files in that folder will have the
.dumpextension. Don’t know how reliably N++ will write unsaved files to that folder, but it’s worked pretty well for me recently.
