Hi,

Recovery File Location
You should not normally need to view recovery files directly. If you do need to see them, they can be found in the My Documents folder. Open this folder and the subfolder named the same as the version of Visual Studio you are using. This contains a "Backup Files" directory that holds the recovery data, organised by project.


Please refer - http://www.blackwasp.co.uk/VSAutoRecover.aspx

Hope this helps.

Sorry to say. But then you lost your code because it was not saved.

If the files do not recover automatically when you reopen the project, then they are gone.

AutoRecovery might not have been enabled in your copy of Visual Studio, or was set to a delay that was too long to be useful.
