So I've done a really dumb thing at work. I deleted a couple of slides from a PowerPoint presentation and re-saved the thing before realizing that one of them shouldn't have gone at all, and in fact it represents quite a bit of work. Argh! Does anyone have any ideas for getting it back? The stupid little paperclip thing isn't helping at all...

I don't think there is anything you can do once a file has been saved the way it is. Does anyone else have a copy of it?

However, just in case there is something that can be done, it might be worth asking your question here:

There are some very knowledgable people there who seem to have something to contribute on all computer related matters.

CD you should have converted the paper clip guy to a cat or a dog...then you hesitate before kicking.

I have three out of five programs that don't have an undelete thing. Seems like Excel is one of them that isn't too good.
Another one is the e mail program in AOL. Ever noticed?
Most programs you have to go and do it by hand and delete your deleteds...but noooooo. AOL once that baby is gone it's gone;
