Basically, the title says it all.

I was working on a video for a good 3 hours completely focused on the video itself not even thinking of saving, except for when i saw the spinning rainbow of death. Then I knew I was doomed, hoping for the best that I saved after the first hour or so, obviously not being the case.

Is there ANY way possible to get back all this editing?

Thanks

Yep. All I have is the first save of the project about 10 min into the editing I did.

Clay, I wish. Last backup I had was last night when I uploaded all the video to my hard drive. I just have no idea if this can be done or not under these circumstances
