Start making frequent backups. :(

Sucks when something like this happens, but it's a good lesson to learn with anything creative.

Save different versions with numbers on the end as you progress, have them all synced to dropbox/etc and copied to a different drive, have a program automatically back that up to a different cloud storage every month or so, there are lots of options available.  Set them up once, save multiple files, and it won't happen again.

If you're on android I recommend drive sync, you can keep your caustic folder synced with your Google drive...

Bottom line it's happened to all of us, get a back up schedule in place, start your track again... It'll probably be better the second time round anyway!
