I was working on an unsaved file when the kernel suddenly got a panic attack. I have the 'Save files when focus is lost" checkbox checked, and I frequently switched between textmate and the browser, so plenty of oppurtunities to autosave there. I don't see any autosaved documents in my 'recently opened documents'. Is there any chance I can get my work back?

    Did you look in the terminal if there is a hidden files that may be a autosave of you document. ls -a lists all files including the hidden ones. – Matthieu Riegler Oct 12 '13 at 17:20

    I have hidden files visible in the finder. In which directory should I be looking? – bigblind Oct 12 '13 at 19:02

    Are you using the OpenSource version of TextMate, if not which version are you using? – Deesbek Oct 13 '13 at 3:44

The file was located in: ~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Session/

This is for the OpenSource version of TextMate 2.0-alpha-9487, on osx Mountain Lion 1.8.5

  • Which Textmate version and which OSX? I know the OP didn't specify his, but it would be useful anyway to specify yours. – o0'. Oct 13 '13 at 9:57
  • @Lohoris that is why I asked about his version of TextMate. – Deesbek Oct 13 '13 at 12:05
