    Hello

    I am in real big trouble....
    I'm a producer and was about to master a production when the hole town I'm living in got out of electricity ......(!!!!!) very good timing. I had saved the file I was working with a couple of times and just before the electricity disapeared BUT the file cant be found it is deleted (?)

    Is there a way to get old files back (maybe a previous state)....I really need this file but I dont want my hole system take a previous state just get/find files. (I'm using Windows XP proffesional)

    I hope you understand what I mean.

    Best Regards //D_S

    Hi,

    What program were you using to do this work.

    What is the file name and suffix. filename.abc

    Have you searched your hard disk for files of the correct suffix

    *.abc.

    Hi,

    *.rns is the suffix and yes I have searched for it without any result.
    I know in which catalogue it was saved but there is no file with current name in that file anymore, very strange.

    Try looking in the dfirectory where it would have gone had you saved it and see if there's a temporary file starting with a $ sign. That would have been the last saved - or auto-saved if you selected it - version of your file.

    Failing that, run a system wide search for files created/saved on the day in question. It's in there somewhere.
