    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,

    Jeff Walters

    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.
