How to recover file contents after Notepad++ crash

Notepad++ is generally a pleasure to use but it does very occasionally crash and empty whatever file you happened to be editing at the time too... Here's where you can find a backup version to recover your file if this ever happens to you too: C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++\backup Note: At the time of writing I'm running Notepad++ v6.7.8.2 on Windows 7 Professional, but you've not got anything to lose by trying this for other versions of Notepad++/Windows. Thanks to Indrajit on Stack Overflow for posting the solution originally!
