Hi,

I'm running Windows XP Professional.

My computer froze up (first time since I reformatted my hard drive and did a fresh WinXP install back in June 2009) and I had to shut it down with the power button. I had some infomation written in my Windows Notepad that I would like to retrieve if at all possible, and no I did not save the file before the crash.

Does anyone know if it's possible to retrieve my info or is it just a lost cause?

Thank you for your help,

Hey Jeff,

Sorry but if you have not saved the file, you would not be able to recover it with any recovery software :(

Thanks

Thank you Harbir,

That's what I was afraid of.

Now I'm going to have to try to retrieve it from my brain, much more work involved.
