Does VS.Net cache source files?

P: n/a
Recently suffered a bad hard drive crash. Was able to recover most of
my old source files, but most were corrupted. Does anyone know if
Visual Studio does any caching of source files? Have tried finding any
info on this, but have come up blank.

Any input given would be hugely helpful.

Best regards,
Marcus

Hello mc*******@walla.com,

Only binaries if u use Windows 2003 where ShadowCopy makes copy of your executables.

it's the cpp and header files i need. the executables i was able to
recover. the original source files were the ones that got corrupted.
was hoping there was some built in autosave tha VS did automatically on
saving or checkout.

thanks
