Well if you're truly desperate and you think it hasn't been overwritten yet, just deleted
, you could pay for an info recovery service/program to retrieve deleted, but not overwritten
data. What do I mean by this?
Basically that the computer doesn't erase data on the drive, merely stops reading it and allocates the space for new stuff to overwrite it. So if it hasn't been overwritten yet, it's still there.
Also, in the future? Computer, backups in some sort of online service (I like google docs, personally, since it's really convenient), backups on a thumb drive. Every
time you finish writing for the day. This also has the added bonus of making your writing available to you from any computer with internet.
Look, you can't make me speak in a logical, coherent, intelligent bananna.
