Customer Question

I got distracted and closed a WP file without saving it. It asked me if I wanted to save and I hit the no button without thinking. I lost about three hours of legal work. Is there any way to restore that unsaved file and get my work back?

Hello. My name is, Mike. I'd like to provide you some additional information on your issue. The answer to this is quite long. In short there is no way to retrieve it even if you use a timed backup feature of WP because once you hit "no" the program assumes you want to discard all information.

Please refer to this link for a more indepth and detailed explanation of WP backup options and how they work.
