Not saving projects

Last response: in Windows 7

I am having a good deal of trouble with my Windows 7 machine. I constantly get an error message that says 'Windows didn't shut down properly' error every time I start up. Well, I booted the machine up and the project I was working on in a program won't open correctly, and my iTunes can't read the XML for my playlist, etc.. I think I may be pretty screwed on not being able to recover my project. I'm not sure where to go from here, or how/why it chose to delete this information.

What program were you using and is there no way to get the saved part of your project ? Some times certian programs have a clipboard that things are put on to be used later.

Davinci Resolve. The instructions for the programs say that the database should be stored in C:\ProgramData\Blackmagic Design\Davinci Resolve\Support\Resolve Disk Database.
I can't locate the 'Support' folder.

Did you do a search of your computer ?

Okay, found it after un-hiding the project. I'm not sure if this is going to be recoverable though. What could have caused windows to flip out on me like this, and what can I do to prevent this?
