How to restore not properly completed video capture of Snagit?

Hi. I was capturing a video with Snagit on my laptop (Windows 10), but without a laptop battery!

I didn't see the warning about low energy. Finally, the laptop automatically shut down and when I turn it on again - there was a message about some Snagit error. I close it but couldn't find this capture anywhere.

Is it possible to restore it? I think Snagit should hold the stream capturing somewhere, even if it was not completed.

The file is initially saved to a temp folder in App Data.
I don't know if it can survive a power loss crash.

I didn't find one (((

Is it the only option available? But when Snagit does a capture, it should create some real-time file!

So, it should be saved somewhere

" . .  it should create some real-time file! . . ".   No, it creates a real time stream of bits. (Not a file until it's properly "closed."
If the file didn't save, it's just a bunch of 0's and 1's without instructions how to read it, sorry.
