Inkscape is Cross Platform software, it’s mean that it is installed Windows, Linux and MacOS. Therefore, coupled with its Open Source aka Free, this application is very widely used by all over the world, including me.

However, because of its free nature, sometimes there are still some obstacles that I have experienced, such as when I was designing, the software suddenly crashed or error caused the Inkscape to close suddenly without any prior warning.

If you are familiar with the Corel Draw software, if the Corel Draw error occurs, there usually show a “Pop Up” or a warning screen whether the application wants to be forced to close or wait until the error disappears automatically.

Well, for those of you who are experiencing the same thing, here I will tell you how to recover the last inkscape file, or it has not been saved at all.

Moreover, the designs that we make are very much edited and have not been saved.
