[Tex/LaTex] TexStudio Autosave Recovery Question


So I was using Texstudio to write an article and the computer just froze. I had to restart the computer, my 2 hour work was gone. I was stupid enough to not save it at all…

Does anyone know if Texstudio auto saves your document like MS word? Is there a way that I can recover it? (I built it countless times when I was writing the article.)

Best Answer

TeXstudio does not save any temporary copies of your file.

There is an option Advanced Editor -> Special Options -> Auto Save All Files. When activated, this callsFile -> Save All` in regular intervals. However, this function is deactivated by default, because it saves and thus overwrites your original file. Since a user should be aware of this behavior and its consequences, it is not activated by default.
