Can anyone help me?? :(

I just wrote a HUGE post with Windows Live Writer... which I loved up until about 10 minutes ago... I went to preview it before I posted and the whole thing crashed and disappeared!  Do any of you know how to recover the lost file?  Of course, I did not save it as I worked because I assumed it auto-saved like other Windows programs.  I'm so sad.  I worked hard on that post!  Please let me know if you know how to recover lost Live Writer files and let this be a lesson for you... always save your work!


  1. Wish I could help! I've done that before and it was HORRIBLE!

    1. It's really a bummer! I am sitting here staring at the screen, pouting! I better just go to bed :)

  2. Oh, no Kate! I am so sorry that happened. Windows Live Writer is suppose to save automatically as you are working on your post. It sounds like it didn't though. How frustrating!
