Recover file after crash

I've been working on a file for a while now - about 2 hours - and have been saving my file throughout. Within the last hour I hadn't saved as I was almost finished and adding the finishing touches to the piece.

Just as I am adding some text to the image, photoshop cs5 crashes and closes down, taking my file with it.

Is there any way to retrieve it? I worked very hard on it and do not want to restart completely.

No, there is no way to retrieve it beyond the versions that you had already saved.

Photoshop CS6 has the ability to save recovery files in the background as you work.
