Make sure your view > Options > editor > behavior ‘Backup editor
every X minutes’ option is enabled.

If it shows no files to recover, then toad wasn’t able to backup/save your
work…

Was it a SQL statement or a pl/sql block/sql script?

if it was a statement and you had executed some version of it, it should also be
in your F8 SQL History

Look here:

C:\Documents and Settings\Application Data\Quest Software\Toad for
Oracle\9.7\User Files

For any files with a ~eb prefix. If anything was backed up, that’s what it
will be named. Editor backups are controlled by this option, which is on by
default, for every 3 minutes:
