Computer stopped working and .psd file was spoilt

My friend and me created .psd file that we have been working during some hard months. Today we've almost done, we've changed some moments in .psd file, when we tried to finish our long time project computer stopped responding, we waited some minutes and restarted it. After we launch computer again, after opening we noticed that last day of our work missed. Now we are searching for the methods to repair psd file by any method, guide or something else.

I believe your best bet is a hard-disk recovery tool of some kind. The file may still be there, just inaccessible. I've used RescuePro from SanDisk with success on deleted image files, but that may not be the best tool for recovering Photoshop files.

Here are some options:

# Open the "Window" menu and choose "History" to display the History panel. Locate the "Flatten Image" step in the list of history states.
# Click on the history state just before "Flatten Image" in the History panel. Undoing the flattening process brings back your layered composition...
# Press "F7" or open the "Window" menu and choose "Layers" to open the Layers panel by pressing "F7" or choosing "Layers" from the "Window" menu. Verify that your document contains the layers you expect. If necessary, step back farther in the file's history to reach the point at which you want to reclaim your document.
# Open the "File" menu and choose "Save As." Change the name of your document and save the file.
