I was using Visual studio 6 (don't ask), and after 4 hours of updating my code and being done (not using sourcesafe nor any other versioning system), I closed the IDE and answered "NO" to 'save changes' by accident.
I now face the prospect of having to recreate all changes from memory.
I didn't do the periodic file > save project.
Remember, I'm a vim guy and don't like IDEs. I would never expect and IDE from microsoft be so dumb that it doesn't automatically save a backup.
Question: are there any temporary files for "current project" that I could check? Any visual studio gurus around?
Times like these make me think: (1) not to touch a M$ product again for anything important like coding. (2) install some kind of real time mirroring (I have daily backups with syncbackSE, but clearly not good if you lose one day of work (!).
Thanks a lot
