Lost my Work

My computer crashed and i had been working on a university dissertation project using the open sesame software. Even though the work is saved and there is no crash message- the file opens up with the basic starting page even though there is 1.6 mb work of data on there. Im stressing out and dont know what to do.

Hope you guys can help!

    Hi Josh,

    What is the situation exactly? Do I understand correctly that you do have a .osexp file, but if you open it nothing happens? If so, can you upload the file here so that I can take a look at it?

    Alternatively, OpenSesame automatically makes backups every once in a while. You can open the backup folder through Menu → Tools → Open backup folder. If you've been working on the project for a long time, then it should have been autosaved a few times in that period.


    There's much bigger issues in the world, I know. But I first have to take care of the world I know.
