When RS fails to save through the application or a file is lost, you can try to find a copy of the file that is located in the temp location. This article explains how to fine the Temp location.

After you retrieve this version of the file, open it in Photoshop to check at what state of progress this file has been saved at. Close the instance of RS that is open and re-launch the retrieved file in RS.

  • Paste in path and hit enter
  • It will take you to that location on the computer. Search there to see if you see the file and copy it to the desktop.
