As most people know, Roblox Studio has a Script Recovery feature. However, as most people also know, it doesn't have very much functionality other than autosaving your scripts in some faraway land folder and allowing you to see your save, but not use it.
Please note, this tutorial is intended Windows users, so it may not work the same on a Mac.
(Assuming that you’ve already lost a script) Open up the Script Recovery window from the view menu.
It should work on team create as I have just used this method to recover a script that I spent about 3 hours on (which is in a game with team create enabled). When you say script recovery isn’t there for you what exactly do you mean by that? The icon isn’t there? Or maybe it isn’t opening? All up to date roblox studios should have script recovery button above terrain (as seen below)
If it’s still not there you could try reinstalling studio.
Inside the Roblox folder, you should find a folder named “ScriptAutosaves”. Open the folder, you should find more folders with a weird combination of numbers and letters. Inside those folders, you should be able to find all the scripts that were auto saved.
As you can see, the extension of each document is in the format .lua, I couldn’t open it since i had no applications to open these. So, what I did was the following.
Right click the chosen document and press “Open with”, then choose TextEdit. If it doesn’t appear on there, go to “Other…” and scroll down until you find TextEdit. Every Mac user should have that application.
Why does roblox not actually HAVE script recover? It just taunts you with it and forces you to do this stupid long recovery process. The fact that this isn’t a single click or two is absolutely disappointing/pathetic really.
I need some help with this script recovery thing, because for me I can’t clear the script recovery output. Like, I already recovered the script but when I leave it, it says its deleted and when I keep going back into the place to edit it, it errors.
