Customer Question
Please can you tell me...
Please can you tell me how I can revert a MS Word document back to its original form after I somehow managed to save another document over it. I've alraidy tried the back arrow but that's greyed out now.

Hi,

There is a chance that the document can be reverted/saved. I will be sending a premium service offer for a remote session so I can connect to your computer and work on the issue. There isn't a guarantee that the file will be saved but I will try every method available.

That's more than 3 months subscription! Anyway I use Drop Box, surely I should be able to retrieve it from there (I pay for a never delete option as well). Thanks.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
