    I have a problem which I can not solve. At 10:14 I opened a word document. I proceeded to type about 1000 words over 4 hours. I was saving as I was going and syncing to google drive.

    Then the window just closed. When I reopened the 4 hours worth of typing had gone. The file had reverted back to 10:14 version I initially opened. I've searched for restore, backup, temporary files looked in Google all versions are at the 10:14.

    However, not one for going mad when I next opened word it wanted to send extracts of errors to Microsoft. In the list was sentences that came from my four hours of typing. I know this to be unique to this file because of its content.I did manage to find one fragemnt of a temp file which had a save at 10:18 with about three extra sentnaces.

    So my question is what happened is there any chance of getting back the lost typed information?
