  1. Hi. I was wondering if anyone knew of a way I can get data I wrote in a txt which was unsaved when windows restarted.
    Also is there a way I can get data I wrote from a browser? Eg. I wrote something in a forum and I want the data back. Of course the data is no longer in the forum ;p. Wouldnt it be lost in the cache or something? Any help would be appreciated!

    A good idea is to keep hitting

    CTRL+A then CTRL+C continually, to keep whatever you write in the clipboard.

    Hey, before it restarted it was 'copied'. But when it restarted it was no longer there to 'paste'... Is there still hope?!

    Nope if windows has restarted then the clipboard is lost.

    If I am typing something long, I started by saving a blank page with the save as and then keep hitting the save icon every couple of minutes in a word processor.
