Is there a way to recover unsaved lines of text in a text file?

by on February 20, 2013

Q: I desperately need to recover a .txt (notepad) file… I know it’s impossible if unsaved but in this case I actually saved it… but long before the pc rebooted automatically; infact in this saved version only two lines appear: so I wanna know if there’s a way to recover the next 10 unsaved lines I wrote… may be directly from the saved file. Please tell me there’s a way, a hope: I’m litterally desperate and I would be thankful for you precious help.

    Francesco – unfortunately there is no way to retrieve those last 10 lines that you are missing. Notepad does not have any autorecover features that auto save in the event of a computer crash. In the future you can try a piece of software called “notepad++” and use the “Autosave” plugin. This should prevent these types of issues from happening further down the road.
