So Photoshop just crashed for no reason and I lost something I had been working on for hours, is there any way to recover it? I forgot to save and the version I have now it basically nothing/ PSE 8 always auto saved my files, does PSE 10 really not do that too?

I am not an engineer but I would like to comment on your statement: Just because you don’t know the reason does not mean there was no reason.
You may want to look into a couple of trouble-shooting routines like System Maintenance (repairing permissions, purging PRAM, running cron-scripts, cleaning caches, etc.), possibly faulty fonts, corrupted preferences ... to minimize the risk of future occurrences and improve your workflow.
