Help! How to recover deleted Wordpad document text
Help!! I have a wordpad document with my infomatin on it. The computer was at a stall and very sluggish.. I brought up my wordpad document (which took a few minutes to access) and try to save it.. I click on save but it won't go nowhere so I just shut off my computer. Now I restart my computer and then click on my wordpad document and all my infomation is gone!!! Yikes!! How do I recover all that information??

thanks for your help!

What does "it won't go nowhere" mean? Where did you save it? It's not there? It was deleted?

If the file was never saved, then it can't be recovered. If it was saved and somehow deleted, you might be able to recover it.

KMplayer made my computer sliggish and everything came to a stall. I was able to bring up my wordoc and went then try to save it but it frozen in the middle of the Save.. So I just shut off my computer. Now that wordpad has lots of information on it (That document already lots of text on it already) and it was all deleted. I don't want to find missing files but to recover the actual text that was already there. Any recover Undo's that you can do to recover all that lost text.

What document has "lots of text on it already"? That sounds like an existing document you can actually open.

But then you say you shut your computer off in the middle of the saving process. That means nothing was saved. There's no text to recover because nothing was actually written to disk. It was in RAM which was wiped out when you cut the power.
