CLION Deleted file content after power went off

My notebook just went out of power while I was hacking on a file.
I save after every line of code, so I didn't expect it to be a problem.

Unfortunately now the file is complely empty, all my changes seem to be lost (I did make a git commit yet).

Is there any way to recover my file?

This is very annoying, why should that ever happen? What kind of error handling is this..

I'm using Arch Linux, installed CLION from the AUR.

After the reboot, CLION doesn't start anymore too:

$ clion

Hi Flavio!

There is a recent issue about a JRE segfault in ArchLinux under investigation. It seems like the same issue as yours. As soon as it will be resolved and you'll be able to launch CLion again, your file hopefully could be recovered via VCS | Local history | Show history. We're sorry for the inconvenience, please stay tuned.
