I am working on a 600 page document. I just lost 540 pages!!!! Was importing images when the program decided to start doing something...I don't know what. I waited, then when it was done thought, "um, I better save my work, that was a little strange, clicked command S." Then I noticed that it had removed 540 text links and their contents. Can I get them back...please say yes! I'm on a deadline and will not complete this project if I can't recover. Now, before you ask, "No, I do not have my Time Machine turned on. Don't scold, I just got tired of it always interrupting my work. I may rethink that strategy."
So, the question is: Does a previous version exist on my computer and can I access it?
Please contact me as soon as possible as I am really in a bind.

Thank God for DropBox. As a result of DropBox's wonderful ability to capture images every time the file is saved, I was able to restore my file. I'm back in business. I hope this information may be helpful to someone else. Yeah! DropBox!
Yep, on-line synced storage is wonderful.
May I make a suggestion? I would also get into the habit of saving versions of your publications. Often, at least perhaps daily or when significant changes are made / to be made. I append a version number to the end of the filename.
Take care, Mike
As long as you haven't closed the file, ID can also undo back through an ordinary save operation.
