Unable to locate recovery files


Ive been saving by mistake increments of my scene in the recovery file C:\Users\gabri\AppData\Local\Temp.

Buy the time I noticed that, all saved scenes were not in this location anymore. I tried to open it from the recent files in Maya but it says Files doest not exist. Im scared. Do you guys have an idea how can I find these?

Is it your personal PC? If shared then admin/superuser or maintenance service could have cleaned the folder which is reserved for unimportant, transitory items, that are safe to delete. Same would happen if you run some cleaning apps yourself, like when your C: drive free space reaches critical limits, it offers to run cleanup - careless click can cause that.

Last chance: look into Recycle Bin.

Very last chance: run some recovery app that can restore deleted files.

I tried all your advice but was not able to recover my scene. I redo it, but way better this time. Thanks a lot for your help, really appreciate it and I'll be more careful next time.
