When Inkscape crashes, it tries to save the document as a backup with following name:

If the document has not been saved yet, the name is:

 inkscape-emergency.<datetime>.#

Note, that there is no .svg file name ending.

Inkscape tries to save in the following paths:

  1. Home directory (~/, $HOME, /home/<username>/)
  2. /tmp/
  3. In the current working directory

(in that order).

On Windows
