My ArcGIS Pro 1.4 has crashed and I noticed it saves an Auto-save file (.save) but I can't open it. The only file formats I can open are .aprx and .ppkx. Arc Pro doesn't suggest any auto-save version (like Microsoft Word for example) as I reopen the project neither.

Any methods to restore the auto-save?

    Have you tried renaming .save to .aprx and trying to open that? Make sure you work on copies because that is just a guess rather than something that I have tried or read. – PolyGeo Aug 28 '17 at 20:25
  • I am not aware of ArcGIS Pro supporting automatic saving (of projects). It does support automatic saving of feature edits but that is a completely different thing. – Midavalo Aug 28 '17 at 23:13
  • @PolyGeo I changed the .save file's format to .aprx but it failed to open. The error is ''This project was saved using a newer version of ArcGIS Pro''. – Navid Aug 29 '17 at 12:47
  • @Midavalo exactly! surprisingly I can't find any resources about project auto-save – Navid Aug 29 '17 at 13:02
