I have a research paper do tommorow. I did most of it tonight, and I accidently hit "no" to the save question when I closed it. I lost everything but the first 2 paragraphs, the heading, and a few sources.

SAVE everything somewhere until you are SURE you no longer need it!

Save periodically during typing your paper too, so if you lose anything it won't be much.

Pretty rotten luck Daniel dry.gif . But listen to other's advise and don't get so caught
up in your work that you forget to save-as-you-go! Do let us know how it
turned out...did you stay up all night re-doing it? unsure.gif

#*%&!

Some systems save every 10 minutes or so. Check your temporary files to make sure it isn't there.

I am not at home on my PC right now, but let me direct you without looking.

Go to your C: drive. There should be something in there labeled Temporary Files. If you don't see it, do a search for "temporary files" of your hard drive for it. It's got to be there somewhere!

I just have to ask - Did you print it out before losing it?

Nope. Redid it last night, handed it in today.

Awww, I hope you did well on it, I'm sure you did! smile.gif I was also going to say
that my computer has a "Search Programs and Files" feature that you see
immediately when you click the Windows globe in the bottom left hand corner.
Enter either the title of your paper or a key word in it and it will show you
everything related to it. I have found sooooooo many lost items by using
that and it only takes a second or two. You can share that grade if you
wanna rolleyes.gif .

I did the same thing once too. Typed 600+ words for an extra credit assignment, I said no to save, and boom, it was gone. The feeling when at happens is terrible.

When creating a document that REALLY means something.

Save it to a permanent named file very shortly after starting it!

Remember CTRL S is your Friend. Use your friend frequently.

I got above an 88, I was told.

Also, off topic, I still have a test to take to mke it, but I could make advanced math! That would mean skiping Math 8, and going to Algebra 1, of I'm correct.
