View Full Version : recovering appleworks previous saved versions? help !!

Hi all

Am writing an essay for Uni using Appleworks 6, accidently deleted my whole intro, which was perfect, while losing track of my cut & pastes.

Was expecting to be able to undo changes or revert to previously saved doc, but then I find it only lets you revert back to last saved version. A few autosavs overwrote the version I need ! :mad:

Have tried looking in the Appleworks User Data/ 'Autosave' folder, but no luck.

Any idea how I can revert or find the data from a previous saved version - eg, from yesterday.

Thanx !

The only way to get yesterday's version is to restore from yesterday's backup I think. Meaning that unless you backed it up yourself, you have almost certainly lost it. AppleWorks doesn't, unfortunately, undo past the last save, as you have found.

Sorry there is no better news.
