From the beginning of 2008 I've been writing summarys of meetings with several people. Totally almost 200 pages, written in WORD 2007 and saved without problems every time. About two weeks ago I wrote again and during my writing I changed side from (if I remember it correctly) 197 to 198.
I saved my opus, but when opening it the following day everyting was gone except what I had written last time! And te page number was No 1!
The document is still there but all what was written is gone!

Is there any chance to get the content back? I'm using WIN Vista Home Premium and Office 2007 and I did my work in Word.

Would be very please if somebody can help me.

Backup! Backup Backup!

In some (Business, Ultimate, Enterprise) versions of Vista, you can easily restore a file from, so called, shadow copies... See here: Previous versions of files

Unfortunately, it's not so easily available in Home versions... Maybe somebody have a better idea, but that program might be of help: ShadowExplorer - if a System Restore, for the disk that file is located on, is turned on, you might be probably able to get that file back...

Then, make a backup... Good luck!
