My laptop was low on ram and I just had a message saying that TextEdit crashed. TextEdit had multiple windows opened and I see that they are all gone, replaced with a single blank untitled RTF document window.

Other than the "recently opened" list which isn't helping at all, Is there some way to search for the lost content? For example a backup file or a dump file somewhere on the system?

  • Were they saved in some way at all? If so, do you have Time Machine running? – Allan Jul 24 '20 at 7:24
  • @Allan, Time Machine not enabled. The files aren't saved, but I believe text edit has them saved to a temporary file. – Pacerier Jul 25 '20 at 13:32
