Lost Code

I uploaded my code onto the arduino before leaving for the weekend and when I came back the computers had been restarted so I lost all my code. However, the code still runs on the arduino so is there any way I could get the code?

Thanks

You can get the compiled code, yes, but not the source.

Verifying an unsaved sketch, I find a lot of the code in C:\Users\myname\AppData\Local\Temp\arduino_build_934683\preproc\ctags_target_for_gcc_minus_e.cpp

After a correct closing of Arduino IDE, it removes the temprary files. I assume a forced shutdown will leave them there.

Always save your work. Who goes away for the weekend thinking they can just leave a screen open and it will still just be there?

The Arduino IDE always saves the C/C++ source code before compiling and uploading, so it is somewhere. Look in the default Arduino directory (the "sketchbook location" in Preferences) for folders with a date name or other suggestive name.

It must still be in your grey matter.

Thanks for the help but I ended up finding it. Accidentally saved it in the wrong folder.
