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...
Just because there's twilight doesn't mean we can't tell the difference between night and day

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;
