I was working on a project and my SV suddently froze. It happens, I saved some time before so I wasn't worried.
Then I found out that SV just recorded a backup I did 4 hours before.
I was desperate. I tried opening the bek file, I tried to find autosaves in the Sony Vegas folder (found nothing). Is there any other way to take my footage back?
If autosave is turned on, the application will check for updates in the project every 5 minutes and if needed, save a copy of the project to an "AppData" directory. Some major background processes will keep the autosave check from occurring (such as a render).
