I am relatively new to Sublime, so please pardon me for any naive questions I may have.
I accidentally force-closed my Sublime Text 3 using Mac’s Activity Monitor and when I restarted, Sublime didn’t recover all the unsaved files (~50 of them).
I went through several posts in this forum, but none of them worked for me.
Example1: The requester recovered using a file in Project folder. Since I didn’t have any Project open, I’m not sure where would I find that kind of a file.
Example2: A reply on this post says that I’m pretty much screwed because I was not using Projects.
Anyways, I searched for all the files in my Mac with name “sublime” and found some files like the ones listed below:
/Users/Username/Library/Saved Application State/com.sublimetext.3.savedState/data.data /Users/Username/Library/Saved Application State/com.sublimetext.3.savedState/window_1.data /Users/Username/Library/Saved Application State/com.sublimetext.3.savedState/windows.plist /Users/Username/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 3/Local/Auto Save Session.sublime_session /Users/Username/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 3/Local/Session.sublime_session /Users/Username/Library/Caches/com.sublimetext.3/Cache.db /Users/Username/Library/Caches/com.sublimetext.3/Cache.db-shm /Users/Username/Library/Caches/com.sublimetext.3/Cache.db-wal /Users/Username/Library/Application Support/CrashReporter/Sublime Text_C6A04335-E900-5C09-B4A3-F203F47923E7.plist /Users/Username/.Trash/Sublime Text (3114).app/Contents/MacOS/crash_reporter
“file_history” in “Session.sublime_session” does not have names or contents for any of the lost files.
I do have “hot_exit” flag set a false.
I don’t know what happened this time for Sublime, otherwise it would always open those (now lost) windows and tabs upon start whenever my Mac has crashed.
I have lost a lot of important details with this(and most likely very costly) mistake. Any help is appreciated.
