BeerSmith does periodic auto backups. You can restore from the most recent.

File > Recover from Backup > choose the most recent date from the popup window.

click "Recover from backup selected" found in the lower left corner of the popup window.

BeerSmith will warn you that the recovery cannot be undone, but that is sort of the point, right?

If you menu into tools/options/advanced, you'll  fine a box about 3/4 of the way down where you can enter an interval for autosave. Reducing the interval may help keep you from losing data in the future.

I have the same problem, but when I restore it does no good.  My autosave is set to 8 minutes but last backup is from 2 weeks ago.   My present brew session has disappeared and does not appear to have been saved although I did save it several times after making changes.   I do run a nightly backup of my computer and I noticed on the logs that beersmith files were saved (flagged as changed) since the last backup available in Beersmith.  Which files would I need to restore to recover my session?
