I'm an active user of Notepad, even though it disappointed me a lot of times because of it lacks of recovery features.
My current problem is: I jotted down some things (which I don't really remember anything of what I wrote) in an opened Notepad file, I didn't save the file in the first place. I came to delete the first line of what I wrote, and I suddenly highlighted everything and got it deleted quickly, without intention.
The thing is, the file is not saved, otherwise, I would've tried to close it directly (without saving the changes to it). + I tried to use the "undo" feature that Notepad provides; very bad that it is limited to (one step backward); because after I lost what I wrote, I mistakenly typed on some things trying to recover what I wrote, and the "undo" retrieved what I mistakenly typed, which is the 1 word itself.
I kept the file opened, and I saved it empty now, in hope that anyone has a method/trick/workaround to have my things back.
