I already know the answer is "no", but I have to ask.... I help a 95 year old guy who is writing his memoirs; he is technically blind but touch-types.Usually I pass by every couple of days and grab a back-up, and have Word automatically backing up plus an incremental backup happens on shut down.The inevitable has happened; I have been really busy for a couple of weeks, and he has had no problems, until today... What I think has happened is that the file got corrupted, and he saved it and shut down, which meant that Word backed up the corrupted file (37KB instead of 1.5MB) and the incremental file back up did the same; didn't see that one coming. So basically he has lost a couple of weeks work, but that is a couple of hundred pages. I've searched all the hidden .tmp files Word accumulates, but no joy. System restore won't redo the changes, and the word from MS is, it's gone. I'm running a file recovery program, but as it wasn't a deleted file I don't hold out too much hope. Before I break that bad news to him, anyone got a miracle cure? OS XP Pro Word 2003.
