    Default TextEdit File Retrive

    Well, Ive been working on a business plan for the past 5 weeks and haven't saved the text files, Ive just kept them open. Now this morning they were not responding so i quit Textedit, it didn't give me an option to save the files or anything. I'm thinking they were going to be there still when I opened Textedit back up but they weren't. Im about to cry, I really need those files back, I will never meet my deadline If i don't.

    I found this but the thread is outdated so I'm thinking maybe the procedure is different now.

    But I'm also not very familiar with iMacs so i may not know what I'm doing. Someone Please Help me out.....

    Your only hope might be is a TimeCapsule back-up... go to an instance of TextEdit at a time before you had issues and see if things are still there...

    Otherwise - consider this a valuable lesson learned - always, always, always save documents and make back-ups.
