I downloaded new Blender 2.82 today and while working on one computer, I started rendering on another. All the time the same settings, no overwriting!!! and I usually have from frame 1 to frame 1 and hit render animation. I was so happy with the result few minutes before render was done. I came back to see final render image and I saw new rendering is running, overwriting… OMG!!! What is going on? never happened before, maybe one or two times, but I had overwriting on. NOT THIS TIME! Is it possible to find te render done? I tried, but I cannot see it.

Blender has a setting called Overwrite in the Output Properties which allows to disable the overwriting of existing files, when unchecked. Unfortunately files that have already been overwritten cannot be recovered.

Disable Overwrite

Ok, now I am back and as a member. I found out the reason why I had problem like this.

Newly instaled Blender 2.82 on one computer (I applied new settings on first computer) found 4 "old layers"(scenes) saved in a file made in Blender 2.79b and started to render new project 4 times.

I wanted to use one model I created for a long time ago in Blender 2.79b. I had two copies of this file and I decided to open one and selected parts of a model I wanted, inverted selection and deleted every other objects (after unhiding everything).

I saved/overwrote this in Blender 2.81 first. I cleaned up the file from information about deleted objects, materials in Orphan Data Outliner mode. But I did not check Scenes. I worked on this model and new project in 2.81. I was satisfied with better look of it and suddenly I saw Blender 2.82 is for download and I did it and started to render the project.

On second computer I accidentally overwrote my settings from 2.81 and rendering was OK. I was shocked when I saw that the first computer is overwriting the render. It stopped it and after som time I took some tests with low sampling and realized that it is overwriting four times and saving at the end one render.

After all I saw these scenes in Outliner. I knew it was from old file and it does not matter that I took the overwriting function off.
