I had installed notepad++ using Softwares in my Ubuntu 18.04, which installed notepad++ using snap. Now, for some reason, my notepad++ is not opening. But I want to get all the unsaved text files I had opened in my previous session. Where can I find these unsaved files?

Most of the questions on web deal with Windows, but not for ubuntu. They usually say that the files are saved in a folder named backup. I searched in the home directory, snap directory. I couldn't find any folder named backup.

My guess would be somewhere below ~/.local or maybe ~/.cache.

I'd try a find for files in the home directory that have changed during the last 3 days (or whenever you used it last):

find ~ -mtime -3

Or maybe start first with ~/.local to avoid dozens of web browser cache files scrolling by:

find ~/.local -mtime -3
