ok my girlfriend was typing a report for her science project, she hadnt saved it and her computer froze and she had to restart, is there a way to get it back or is it hopeless? this maybe a stupid question, but it was like 5 or 6 pages and she really needs it, so any help would be appreciated

Was She using Microsoft Word? If so, and autosave was set to on then do a search for an .asd file.

If not then it's lost.

yeah if she was using MS Word than there is a chance of recovering the file, in office xp in such events when you start again it gives you option of recovering the file
