A little while ago i opened up one of my wordpad documents that was 7 pages long and to my great surprise all the data i had previously saved in this document was not displayed! I swear i did not delete the 7 pages of data myself. Subsquently i opened up some of my other wordpad documents and found the data i had saved in these docs was no longer showing too!
Interestingly all of the affected docs were saved and open at times when my laptop battery went. Perhaps these docs were corrupted when the laptop battery ran out. I dont have any docs that do not display all previously saved data that were not open at times when the laptop battery ran out!
The affected wordpad files were saved as RTF. I saved the files in calibri font but when i open them now the font is shown as courier new for some reason. All of the affected wordpad files do not display any of the previously saved data. I have opened the affected files and changed the fonts but still the data wont display. However when i go to this pc/documents and enter the name of one of the affected docs in the 'search documents' box the search result shows the first few lines of text in the file so i guess the data is there i just have to find a way of accessing it!
When i open the affected wordpad files with MS Word(unlicensed version) pages of squares come up.
When i open them with open office pages of #'s come up.
Can anyone help?
