I had been working on this file for the last 4 or so hours.

And accidentally deleted it with NerdTree (mdy).

here comes the climax: .....

It was stillllll...... in the NEOVIM. BUFFER.

    Jetbrains products also have a local history feature. It essentially takes snapshots of your code at certain times and you can easily browse it.
