Your frustration over so much lost work is understandable. This is a typical rookie mistake. Your information on how and why your document was lost is very vague. Only by marking a text, it does not disappear, at most you then press the Delete button. After that, you would have to save your document blank to get the effect you mentioned. Resetting the computer to a time in the past will never help you retrieve lost documents.

What you can do:

  1. Look in your trash can to see if the document is still there.

  2. Contact a professional data recovery company.

Otherwise, you'll probably have to accept that your data is lost. So in the future you can remember to regularly save your documents and make backup copies.

I wish you success!
