I was playing in PCSX2 and suddenly the power went out. I had quite a big of progress from my last save I was wondering if PCSX2 has any method of restoring a session?

Even if you had saved your progress in a save state, it would have probably been corrupted because of the sudden power out. so, no other way AFAIK.

Only if the power went out during the writing of the state to disk. And even then, you'd have the backup state.

I have experienced this first hand. Had several power outages one day while playing PCSX2 during bad weather. One right during a save state. But the backup still worked.

I think it may also get corrupted when the power also goes down while not writing the state to disk. I have experienced it before, I had made a save state 1 minute before the power shutdown and it was still corrupted. of course, the back up state worked. Smile

That isn't physically possible - unless for some reason your PC delayed the write of the save state, or it was in the cache of the drive.

Once a state is written to disk it isn't touched for write access again - so how could it be corrupted?

that's what I'm asking about Tongue2 , I can't think of any other reasons than it delayed the write of the save state.

Caching writes to the hdd is not that uncommon... The reason for always to log off an usb device instead of just pulling it out.
