Saved as a TMP File


After working on a model for the past two hours I finally decided to get off for the day but there was an error in saving my progress that I never encountered before. I had clicked “Save As”, saved the model to my desktop as an .skp file and with it’s own name and everything and it had worked out fine. However, when I closed SketchUp AFTER saving it, the file on my desktop that I just saved, automatically converted (I saw the desktop icon change too) into a .tmp file out of nowhere. Now, I can’t access all the progress I just made. I tried renaming the .tmp to a .skp and this works but when I open the model I get nothing but a white screen with the axis and tools present, not my model. The only other save I have is the one before I started working.

So, is there any way to get my model back or am I out of luck?

I am using SketchUp 2017.
