All my art is gone!

Krita just crashed and deleted all my pieces. All that work just poofed out of existence. Any advice on how to recover them?

Type of device (graphics tablet/display tablet/2-in-1 laptop/Android tablet):
Brand and version of the device:
System (Windows/Linux/Mac/Android, + version):

Description of the issue (you can include screenshots):

Krita doesn’t delete files on the hard drive. Maybe they are just not in the “Recent Documents” list?

Can you share the content of Help -> Show system information for bug reports? (You can paste it to and share a link, because it would be super long).

If you are on Windows, go to your searchbox, and type .kra
That will show you at least some of the Krita files on your computer! (If you saved them as .kra, which is Krita’s “project” file type)
