Spreadsheet Info Disappeared

Postby MrsDoyle » Mon Feb 11, 2019 6:01 pm

Hi there,

I've been working on a spreadsheet the last week and save it as i'm going on. First day when i went in the information had gone and i just presumed i forgot to save. But now a week later and alot of work put in and i got a box with a Text Import at top, Unicode was in box highlighted and i clicked ok. Everything i've imputted has gone. Anyone any ideas how to get it back. File is still there just blank sheets.

There will be nothing in your file - waste no time in hoping. Use the methods in this tutorial to find older copies of your file

This problem may have occurred because of over-hasty power off of your computer or snapping laptop lid shut before the internal buffers of the hard disk drives had written their buffered data to disk.
