Entire word document is replaced by infinte loop of #'s

Postby Eugeni111 » Mon Apr 20, 2015 7:24 pm

The entire word document that i have been working on has been replaced by infinite #'s, and it saved so I can't get the document back. Before this, for the first time ever, it asked me for my forename, my surname and my initials. Then it had a box of selections that aked me to select language, and other such things. As they were already selected, I clicked okay, as Openoffice wouldn't let me in without it, and now the entire document has been replaced by a constant line of #'s that never end.

Bad news, I fear. see: 22 pages term paper replaced with pound signs.

Look at the suggestions in this posting

You may be able to rescue something.
