Photoshop crashed and deleted the file although it was saved several times before the crash and replaced it with a file called "ps7382.tmp"

So I worked for days on this PSD file and therefore obviously saved it quite a lot. Today I worked again for hours on this file and suddenly it crashed after one of my saves. Now the file is gone and was replaced with a file called "ps7382.tmp". I tried to use Open Recent but it said: could not open the file and when I re checked Open Recent it was gone from the list. I did find a file in C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent
called like the missing file but it's only 2 KB big

Sounds like your OS was part way through moving the file when the crash occurred.

Most likely the file is corrupt or incomplete and will not be recoverable.
