My computer switched off while I was working on photoshop cs5 (MAC) and I hadn't saved my files, once I switched it back on the files had disappeared. Is there any way of recovering my files? Is there a temp folder I can search in?
Please help, I have a presentation due a few hours ago and have had no luck so far

Hello Vali and Alex,

I'm afraid the file is lost.  Photoshop does have an auto-save feature, but this feature wasn't added until CS6, three years ago.  There is no temp folder where the file is stored.
