Word Problem

By jingernut ·
Hi Guys

I hope you can help me restore a document that is behaving strangly. I created a word document using Office 2000 and added all the data that I needed, I then saved the document. But when I opened the document in the morning to my horror Ifound that I only had the last page available. I know that I saved the full document, does anyone know how I can recover the document. I have tried using the recover text option in word with no success.

Any suggestions that you can offer will be greatly appreciated!!!!!

Thanks for your help in advance

I'm not sure if you still need an answer or if you've already recreated the file. But, if the data was not overwritten, it should be recoverable. Look at the size of the file first. If it's a lot smaller than it was, your data may be gone. If it's the same size, then you have a shot at getting it back.

The recover text function should have found it, but try opening it in Notepad and Wordpad also. Often documents Word can't open (when the header is trashed) are accessible in those simpler programs.

If that doesn't work, you might send it to a data recovery house.

Good luck!
