Computer Service – Prepare for the worst!!!
Most all of us have at one point in our lives howled in frustration at the fact that we just lost an important document. We may have accidently deleted it, the computer lost power without saving it there is all kinds of things that happen to documents.
I have lost plenty of college and high school projects that way and have had to deal with re writing everything….especially frustrating when you are just about done!

Computer Service tip number 1:
There are ways that this is fixable. My fist suggestion as a “pro is to save, save and save! It does not matter if you are done editing, need to re-read your work; need to run the spell check.
Save that work every few paragraphs or more often! Save it EVERY time you walk away from the computer, you never know who will unplug it, if there is a power surge etc.
This can save a lot of heart ache in advance. You can always go back and edit and resave, but once it is gone it is scary that you may never get your work back although we will go over some ways to do so.
Computer Service tip number 2: Advanced approach
If you run into the situation where you have deleted a file, you first need to make sure that you do not run any program or file until you have retrieved the file. It may still be there but the computer considers this to be “free space” that it can write over.
You will need to download; preferably in advance of the incident free file recovery software such as Recuva (available at piriform.com) thesoftware will come with a “wizard” that will help you through the process. If the data is recoverable then usually the software will find it for you and restore it.

Computer Service tip number 3: Novice approach
Some computers will allow you to go back and retrieve the file from the recycle bin, Windows 7 allows you to search for the file there and follow directions to restore it.
Even those of us who are very careful with our work lose it sometimes. Your best bet is to be careful, but if a mistake is made most times the newer computer software is very forgiving and will let you fix it.
