I was wondering if there was any chance this code could be somewhere on my pc stored as a temporary file?

I have visual studio 2002,

What files would i be looking for? The project is still there but the code i added is not. I was wondering if there was any temporary files that might contain this code?

If you hadn't saved the files to disk, there's not much chance of recovering the data.. If you added a new file to the project and it's not there now, then you should be looking in the project folder for any possible recoverable files.
