From guest blogger editorial consultant Cressida Downing
I was doing some copy-editing a week ago, an urgent job for a new client, when Word froze on me in a new and interesting way (just when you think you’ve seen all the circles of hell…).
I tried all the usual things I could think of, but had to crash out of it. I lost 20 pages of work and was frantic! Until I remembered I’d installed a fancy new back-up system that takes a snapshot of my work every hour – and I could track back and catch it just before the crash. Back up your work! Get help from a techie friend if you need one.
