There was a large document I was working on just about an hour ago. I had saved it, and I reset my computer shortly after because I wasn't able to connect to the internet. When I got back on and reopened it, the document was one massive line of squares. I found a variety of conflicting solutions online, though a common problem seems to be people saving their documents onto removable storage. It was just on my internal hard drive.

I tried changing fonts and I even tried pasting it into text forms online and even opening it on another computer, and it's still just one huge mass of squares.
