I’m sorry, you guys have probably received this kind of question a lot, but this is upsetting me a fair bit.
On Saturday, a wrote a whole bunch of new text into a document I use for drafts - several thousand words. Since then, the computer was closed/restarted a few times, but I thought I’d saved it. Even if it wasn’t saved, I have autorecovery to save every 15 minutes - I was working on the file for hours, so it should’ve saved.
But when I opened it today, everything I had written on Saturday was gone. And there was no autorecovery either.
Is there any way to get back what I did? Any place where autorecovery files are stored? Or would they be overwritten now, since I had the document open again? Is there any way at all to get back what I wrote? I spent hours on it and was really pleased with how it turned out, I’m really upset at the thought of having to rewrite all of it…
(Please don’t ask why I didn’t save. I genuinely have a memory of saving - because my computer had an update, so I saved everything I was doing so it could turn off. Even if that occurred beforehand or something, I have absolutely no idea why I wouldn’t have saved. It makes no sense to me. But I have ADHD and sometimes nonsensical stuff like that just happens. )
Edit: I’ve tried to restore previous versions but there are none. Also, it’s saying that it was last modified January 27, which makes no sense!!
