Customer Question
I deleted inadvertently deleted...

I deleted inadvertently deleted text that I would like to have back. How can I retrieve it?

Technician's Assistant: What application are you using?

Mac windows

Technician's Assistant: What version of Windows are you running on your Mac?

I'm not sure. How can I find out

Technician's Assistant: The Mac Technician will be able to walk you through that. How long has this been going on with your Mac? What have you tried so far?

I checked in the trash can. Not there. Herte's what I did. I wanted to transfer some text to a new word page, so I cut it from the first page and pasted in on to the second. Somehow I got confused and lost the text.
