Help Needed?
I was working on a drawing, I had multiple Layers, and was working with grouping to keep it organized. Well my computer was freezing up and I had to restart Gimp, I thought I'd only be loosing a few minutes of work cause I had saved VERY recently. I re opened Gimp and suddenly...I can only see the group I was working with. The latest work is there but all my other layers are gone...PLEASE HELP. I had hours put into the piece.

it was saved as an xcf file
