    Please help- retreiving data

    I have lost some 5000 words of data over the last day.

    Firstly, one essay saved (3000) to disc has come up all funny squares and shapes when i try to bring it up in word. This one is not so bad as i have printed a majority of it out once, so i can quickly retype if push comes to shove (well i am a one finger typer so it will still take ages).

    Secondly, and more disturbingly is some 2500 words of an introduction to a major research proposal- worst bit is i had my full essay plan and refferences collected from the last few months tagged on the end. To make matters owrse i did a majority of the wordage, and all the essay plan directly from my not-so- brilliant mind directly to pc. When i came to pop the disc in (same one as used above) this am to make a few adjustments, the bastard was blank apart form above mentioned work- which even then was wonky.

    Where is my essay? It was all typed on a uni pc over the last few weeks, so no chance of it being on mine here at home. I will check at uni- but i know from previous spazziness that no work is saved automatically, and i no for a fact i only saved this to disc.

    Oh and both are due it at 1.30 today, or its stacking shelves at Kwiky for me.

    What versions of word are you using and what operating systems ?? XP ??

    Can anyone have saved over the document to piss you off ???

    Does the document not work only on your works computer ???

    Have you tried opening it on another PC ??

    Could be a corrupt Normal template

    start \ search \ files & folders

    look for normal.dot

    its usually in applicaion data in th MS office folder. It is a template document.

    Delete it or rename it to old.doc or anything, open work again. this will recreate the template. This will also fix the error message "Winword.exe has generated error's"

    Need a little more information about the document though hun, try the above and let me know

    if you had the second document and were working on it from Uni for the last week then you must have saved it somewhere to load it up next time to continue your work. When you load it at uni where do you get it from ??

    Sounds to me like you either have pish old systems at uni and a new one at home and the one at home wont support the word doc cause there that fucking old, or its the other way round,

    But then again your female, the documents could be floating round Mars

    Typical user LMFAO it was fine before you touched it blah blah blah.

    Microsfts a fine company isnt it hun, nothing ever goes wrong with its products and it never brings out half baked Operating Systems that are floored to fuck, then having to bring out updates to rectify all the problems the operating stsyem has when people click on that error box, that never appears when problems dont occur

    LOL i would say how typical of a woman to have blinkers on to the truth, what is it you females see,

    ££££££££
    Shoes
    Shoe Protection
    Cute Animals

    Dont think anything else goes through the female mind does it ??? I know for a fact the point I raised about Microsoft being pretty shit and releasing its products before fully tested wont enter there even though ive proved it you still wont understand what i mean........... here ill try again in your language.

    Microsoft is a company that has lots of ££££ it make shoes and those shoe straps snap very often, so it sends out new shoe straps to its customers to repair the broken straps, However some times it releases lovely litte cute animals, these animals eat the shoes so it then Microsoft releases shoe protection to stop those cute animals eating its shoes. Now if Microsoft had just made Shoes that's straps didnt break, it wouldnt need to realese all the shoe straps to replace the broken ones, and if it trained its cute animals to NOT eat the shoes then it wouldnt need shoe protection.

    It doesnt though sadly it just bangs out its shoes left right and center.........

    Now you see where im coming from hun

    God im good to you having to explain these things in your language
