Help needed to recover lost project from AF Designer

Recommended Posts

Hi

So I worked on a design last few days and somehow the project file has disappeared. I have the exported png file - however the project history  - under OPEN RECENT doesn't even show the project in the list ! I don't remember deleting the project.

Is there a way to recover symbols from the lost project or will I need to re-do the whole thing ?

Wondering if upgrading to Mojave on Mac has anything to do with it.

Thanks in advance

Do a search for the project name, did you save it onto a usb device or what about looking in time machine?

Hey 

Searched the mac - haven't used time machine ever - is there a way to look for it ?

It was in the same project folder as other components I was working on - and others are still there except this one I was looking for. Also why has it disappeared from the open recent files tab ??

Time Machine is very useful, you can find it in System Preferences, to get System Preferences press ⌘+Space and type "system" this should suggest "System Preferences.app go ahead and press enter/return to start System Preferences.

Look for this Icon and click on it.

Hopefully it will be backing up Ive greyed out my details  but next to Select Disk it will show info about backups.

If it is backing up (fingers crossed) if you check the box Show time machine in menu bar you can click on the menu icon and select enter time machine
