Re: need help for a friend please

Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

YIKES!
It sounds like she didn't hit Alt plus A, but rather, Control plus A. That highlighted everything. If she hit a key after that, she replaced everything in the document with that single letter or character.
At that point, she could have pressed Control plus Z to reverse the last action.
Instead, it looks like she saved an essentially blank document over her other document.
Of course, she had a back-up copy of the document stored elsewhere. Right?
If so, she should just retrieve the back-up. It will, it is hoped, have most of the contents, minus the last few entries.
If she doesn't have a back-up, she almost certainly will in the future! <SMILE>
Seriously, I think the document is entirely gone, but if someone on this list knows a way to get it back, other than through a back-up, I'm all ears!

HELP!!!!!



During this year 2011, since January the 1st; I have felt led to
compile some promises that God had spoken to me in His Word each day.
Sometimes, I would just type prayers, or Scripture with me writing
comments after them.



I should have called this document "A JOURNEY WITH GOD instead of
"GOD'S PROMISES TO ME." Actually, the document has just been called
God.dox. I am not sure why Window's didn't grab all that title, but it
did not.



Anyway, I had just finished typing this morning, what I felt God was
speaking and was trying to save it with "control key and the letter s."
However, I accidentally pushed, I believe the alt key along with the
letter A. No big deal, it just simply took me back up to page 1; at
least that's what it read. So, I simply pushed the "Control S" to save
and then closed the document with "alt F-4." However, just this
afternoon, when I opened the document, it is totally blank. I cannot
seem to find the 161 pages of document!! Do you know what might have
happened to it?? I just feel bad about this. Please let me know your
opinion.



God Bless,

but that fall from your heart and cover your soul.'
