Bummer.. i have developed a serious CTRL +S addiction because of this.

That makes to of us :)

@shiva112 Sorry man, that really sucks. A few years back I wrote a huge essay in Microsoft Word. Then my PC crashed, and all my work gone. I didn’t know about the autosave feature, and wrote everything again.

Dropbox and other services like this have versioning. I always work on current sites in my Dropbox folder, so it syncs with all PCs and I can go back 5 versions in case something happens. Of course, you need to develop Ctrl+S addiction :D Also, I’m not a Mac user yet, but isn’t Time Machine going to help? nevermind, you never saved it in the first place…

+1 i also face this level issue, after that i use DropBox. And my life is save.

It happen a few times to me too when I was in high school (I finished University 3 years ago) and now I have this Ctrl+S addiction, it’s like a reflex and it’s better than the best app, it simply doesn’t use any CPU :D

Almost reminds me when I was cleaning out old databases from my host account only to later realize I also deleted my website’s database…a site that was live, for my business, and that had over 1800 theme memberships! lol….I was lucky to have a host that kept server backups. Anyway, in relation to what you experienced, it took time but I eventually got into a habit of saving after each thingi I do to my file. So for example, add a drop shadow? Save! Deleted a layer? Save! Just like a few others here, and I know it sounds crazy but being as I’m on a Windows machine, I simply do Ctrl + S for save and I almost do it without realizing I’m doing it as it takes a split second and then I’m off to do more work to the file. Even auto save every 5 minutes can lose a lot of work within that timeframe if something happens at 4:59 seconds in.
