Recovering workspace after exiting Matlab

115 views (last 30 days)
Hi guys,
I have made a big mistake by not including a command to save my workspace after my simulation ends. My computer shut down and now I don't have most of the matrices from my simulation results. Is it possible at all to recover my workspace after I exited Matlab without saving them? I've googled this and everybody says it's impossible. Just in case anybody has a different answer.

The data is gone. MATLAB keeps workspace contents in memory and does not bother to write the contents to disc unless it is asked to.

I think the core dev's should consider adding an autosave/recover function.

So you're saying we should use functions instead of scripts?
