i saved a doc file in word. Two weeks later, I opened it. it was 19.5 kb and all text. When i opened it, there are no characters. I dont know what happened. It is a very important file to me and when i use windows explorer, it says the size of the file is 19.5!!

this is too wierd for me. here is what i have tried.

opening on another computer -same result
opening it with notepad (i got a lot of ascii type junk)
checking if the font was white (it says automatic, its not white).

any ideas or thoughts ? Im thinking the file is not being read correctly somehow? But of course, I want to recover the text.

thank you in advance

I hate to tell you this, but I just save an empty document in word, then checked it and it said it was 19.5k.
I think that somehow, your document was not saved there.
