when your maya crashes, does a message " fatal error " appear? If it does, a message box usually appears saying fatal error with the path of where your file was saved. it usually saves the file in the temp folder in your drive C.
Try looking for it in C:\Windows\Temp...

When in doubt, save. When not in doubt, save anyway!!

Always save, even if you haven't changed anything. For me it is OCD at this point, but I never lose any work because of a crash!

Things like this happen, so save whenever you change anything.

Lesson learned.
