I am using Vim 8 in WSL Ubuntu. While copying text into a file the terminal crashed. I don't believe it is the WSL as Task Manager does not show 'Not Responding'.
I have tried using this answer which works on new terminals but not on the one that crashed, where it simply does nothing.
I can see the unsaved text on the unresponsive terminal running Vim and the
vim -r command tells me
process ID: 1062 (still running) but when opened with the read only option the unsaved text is not there.
Is there a way to recover this file?
