Accessing autosaved files

crash-report

#1

Dear R Studio users,

During a long session R Studio crashed, and when I re-opened, the .R file I was working on was a previous version. I was under the impression that R Studio auto-saved .R files every 5 seconds, as these files generally re-opened whenever I re-opened the program.

Is it possible to recover the lost .R file on my Ubuntu system? And if not, any suggestions how to avoid this happening in the future?
Many thanks!
