This is probably a long shot, but I figure no harm in asking.
Long story short, a project file that had been stored on an external HDD was lost.
I had used that project file on my computer, reading and writing to the HDD.
Is there any chance that any of the project file might be recoverable from any of the cache, temp, proxy or any of the other program files in the C: drive? I can see Hitfilm program folders in AppData and the like that have stuff in them.
The HFP file I had was almost entirely a comp, with a total of three images and one audio file. The assets I still have. It's just the comp I'm trying to recover.
I imagine the answer to this is no and "you should've backed up your files, you moron." But I figured I'd ask just in case.
