Lost unsaved Garage Band File - PLEASE HELP

I had an audio file made on Garage Band but it was unsaved. I left my computer on at night and for some reason this morning my computer had seemed tor restart. I opened the garage band file but nothing came up.

Is there any way I can recover this 'unsaved file'? It must be stored in cache somewhere.

Someone please advise.

Thanks.

    you may be able to retrieve any audio recordings. ctrl-click the project file and pick Show Package Contents. if the recordings exist they'll be in the Media folder

    I would just like to say Thanks to HangTime up there. This trick worked 100% ... I had recorded 8 or 9 rather long tracks; for an unexpected reason (first time I've ever seen the "gray screen of death") the popup window came up and in several languages told me I needed to restart the computer; did what it told me to, begrudingly. Came back online, opened the GB file, nothing was there. Yet, when I checked package contents for the file (which I didn't even know existed, compartmentalized "Media", until after reading this), there were the tracks! I owe you both for getting this up and running... album creds just may be in line. ~Matt
