Saving data while working is a rare habit. Designers are frequently found banging their heads against a wall, crying over lost photoshop work. This tutorial might help ease the pain in that case.
I had previously posted an article on how to recover an unsaved file in Adobe Photoshop on Windows. After receiving many comments and emails, I am now writing this tutorial on how to do the same on Mac OS. I’ll be using OS X Yosemite for this tutorial. However, the procedure is the very same for other versions too.
At times, the recovery file does not show up on restarting Photoshop. Here’s how to manually get to it:
Apple, don’t know why seems to hide the user files. So, you might not be able to get to the auto recover file through spotlight. But, directly opening the folder might do the job for you.
Open up a finder window and press COMMAND + SHIFT + G to open up the go to folder dialogue box as shown in the image below.
Now in the dialogue box, copy paste the the link to directory given below:
~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CS6/AutoRecover
This will take you to the folder where you can find your weirdly-named recovery files which might save you a lot of time and effort 😉
Here’s one untitled file I had been working in the AutoRecover folder.
I hope this will be helpful for mac users.
