    Default Restore damaged .RTF file to an earlier state WITHOUT FILE HISTORY

    Hello,

    On 3/30/16 @ 5:34pm [EST], I was working on my .RTF file and when I saved it, I mistakenly unplugged my power cable. Later, when accessing the same file, a HUGE portion of the contents were missing.

    FYI, File History was disabled. Is there a way I can restore this SAME file to an earlier save? I saved it once around 1pm, then later worked on it at 5:30pm. Can I recover a previous version from the 'Windows.old' folder? FYI, the file itself is NOT missing. Only a HUGE portion of contents.

    ANY help would be SUPERBLY appreciated. This file is my LIFE!!!

    With gratitude,
    Jonathan

    I think you have lost the file. Windows.old save only user files during a Windows upgrade. Since File History was disabled, there does not seem to be any chance in my opinion.
