Are there any crash-recovery measures for Camera RAW?

So at work, I usually use ACR as a quick means to get my photos directly into photoshop (as i don't usually have the time or want to put in the effort of dealing with LR Classic).

My question is regarding ACR and recovery of edits if ACR crashes or closes unexpectedly.  I know that LR Classic writes the edits to the database as you do them, and you can set it to write the changes to an XMP file as well (if you're working with a RAW File) but does ACR have some means of recovery after a crash, even if it means having to redo the last few steps of say a longer edit session (that might include quite a few other edits)?

So far, the best thing I can think of to protect against this is to click "Done" periodically and let ACR save the changes to an XMP file, and then re-open and continue working.  Would be nice if it had some sort of edit cache that it could save and that could be recovered if it crashed, even if it wrote a temporary XMP file that would be then removed when you clicked Open, Cancel or Done (if you clicked Done, all of your edits would be saved to a regular XMP file and the temporary XMP file would then be deleted).
