See the node "Recover" in the Emacs manual, it is described there.

When you start Emacs as "emacs -q" (lower-case 'q'), it should show a
prominent message saying this:

  Auto-save file lists were found.  If an Emacs session crashed recently,
  type M-x recover-session RET to recover the files you were editing.
