I was working on a level, hit save, quit, and after returning to the editor the level was in a previously saved state. Is there a way I can check if there's an autosave file containing these changes and load it?

  • I dont think auto saves are made, and if they are, most likely they are made with each map build. If you go to your portal 2 folder, the most likely place for auto saves would be : \Steam\SteamApps\common\portal 2\portal2_dlc2\maps The folder your looking for should have in it at least one .bsp file Commented May 10, 2012 at 21:28

    Autosaves are being made. I've had the problem before, where I clicked the save button and then quit, where it told me the app told me I quit too soon, and the program didn't have a chance to save it, but it had an autosave, and asked me if I wanted to load that. I always did, and it looked like the version I actually tried to save.

You should be able to go into your workshop levels and then you should see your autosave if not it is probably in single player or co-op levels depending on what type of map your making
