Well..if you didn't save it, it's gone..only fragments, maybe..a suggestion, if you're using word..go to save as, and there will be a pull down menu on right side, that says tools..you can set up an autosave feature there for 1 - 20 min in duration.

Can shutting down your computer improperly cause harm to your computer hardware,the installed hardware, or your data on the computer?


It can't really hurt the hardware. By not shutting it down properly, though, you can lose data or damage programs. In order to shut down, all the open files must be closed and this is what the system is designed to do. By just turning off the computer, some files may be left open and not finish writing to the hard drive. This results in lost file clusters and the resulting loss of data. Much can be fixed by running a scandisk, but there's no guarantee. var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_17db2df8e38d488da43eb7f6457b238e(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_80bb9b0587c1423a8a9869cc1228ee62(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

Cannot open file - "Unexpected File Format"


Does the program allow for "auto back Up?" if so I would look in the folder of the original file and look for one closely named but probably with a different extension, if it exists rename it a different name than the original and with the proper extension. then try it. If not you have probably lost your work due to improper closing of the file when your computer crashed. You could try the manufactures web site and look for a corrupt file recovery tool of some sort. Sorry I could not help more.

USB card memory drop & files lost


Your card is showing signs of improper removal or virus infestation. I would run a virus scan on it at once, back up any remaining data (after scanning of course), then follow the instructions when you remove the card from your computer. Not shutting down the card before removing is similar to turning off your computer without shutting down first. Usually it's ok, but it can cause data loss.

Good luck.

Computer shuts down on its own hard drive just completly shuts off have to hit power button to restart it. I am thinking that it could be power supply going bad because at times it does have a slight...


Hello mr_nasty_72,
Your problem could be several things. Your hard drive is either over 90 percent full and the windows swap file is dumping the computer to shut down. the hard drive has a bad spot i it and when the system writes to it, then computer shuts down. Your memory has a bad spot in it and when the file useage of the memory gets high enough and finds the badspot, the computer shuts down due to the error. I would run a memory test program on the memory to ake sure it is not a memory error. Also rin a utility like spinrite on the hard drive and see if it can repair any bad sectors it finde and recovers any lost information on the drive. If your computer is new enough you cn go into the bios setup and look at the system utility for the power and fan system on the motherboard. This will tell you if the power supply is putting out the correct power voltage for the system. Regards, rcampsr
