I have been working on a huge build for a week, and then the computer crashed today. It's saying the last save was 3 days ago! I read on the site there's an autosave, where are the files autosaved on my machine?

Please help. I feel like I am going to cry with the amount of work I just lost.

Welcome to the forums @Utterson

The answer to that question will be dependent upon which operating system you are using and where you bought the software from (Serif, Microsoft, Apple).
Do a forum search for “autosave” (without the quotes) to get lots of answers and advice.

My recommendation: Save often, and Save As with a new filename before any major changes.

Also, if the file recovery function is working for you, then when you try to Open that file again Publisher will ask if you want to recover it. There is no need for you to find the recovery file yourself.
