Laptop crash, files missing/old

Really trying not to panic here.
My laptop crashed about half an hour ago and took an age to restart again afterwards. Once back in, I reloaded Scrivener, which itself instantly crashed on me. So I reloaded it again, only to find an old version of my document. So I opened up my backups folder, but the most recent backup in there was even older. The RTF files are also missing/old. And to top it all, my USB stick has also failed, so I can’t even get a still-old-but-newer-than-this version. Please tell me there’s a cache or something somewhere.
