I closed my story down without archiving it and when I went to open it again I lost all my most recent work. I know it's saved on browser local storage, but I'm not sure how to find it. I haven't touched my cookies or deleted any history. Is there a way to recover what I've lost?
I have a downloaded Twine 2.0.8 on Windows 7. I believe it's 64-bit.
To see the folder in which the application saves the Story Projects you need to first run the application, then select the Twine menu items, followed by the Show Library menu item. This should open an instance of the Windows File Explorer at the Story Project folder.
I'll go there manually through the file folders, but unfortunately, it's only my old saves.
If you look at the details of the files within the story project folder using File Explorer is the latest file date before the last time your edited a story project?
Mhmm, they were all old files. I only lost about three hours worth.
Thank you for your help, Greyelf.
One other way to preserve the most recent version of a story project is to use the Publish to File option to create a story HTML file, as you can re-create a story project from this type of HTML file.
warning: Just remember to never save any story HTML file you create within the same folder as your story project files, as this can cause you to destroy the story project file.
