So, I have a ClickZ Experts column due every other Thursday, and I spent a decent amount of time yesterday trying to get one step ahead. Then, this morning, I went to finish it up and saw the file I’d been working on — and diligently saving on a regular basis — wouldn’t open. Then I looked at the directory and saw it was listed as being 0 kb in size. Uh, oh.
After looking for temp files, etc. I fired up Google Desktop Search. There I found 3 or 4 different cached versions of the file — one not too far from up-to-date — which I could easily cut and paste into a new file. *Whew* Who would have thought? Anyway, many thanks, Google.
