crash and deleted assembly

Has anyone ever had SolidWorks start acting up and then crash, and then BAM, your assembly file on the disk is gone?

 

I was working on an assembly that was last saved in SWX 2016; now I'm on SWX 2018. My wireless mouse started acting up like it the battery was bad or something, then I couldn't save a file because SolidWorks claimed it had in context features and I needed to Save As (no in context features), then I tried to save the assembly and it crashed. After restarting SolidWorks, my assembly is completely gone!

 

Every day this software feels more and more like a toy than a professional piece of software. Yes, I know Windows is part of the problem, but seriously, this is ridiculous.
