So, I recently had a technical issue with a MS where the file corrupted and became unopenable. I had not made any backup file for over a month (yes, yes I learnt my lesson- gate, horse, bolt etc) and so all corrections, changes and improvments that I had done since then are now lost.

My real issue is, in starting again on that month old back up doc, I cannot remember all the tiny corrections I had done. I feel what I had lost was somehow inspired and made the MS 100 times better, but my current work feels lile a shadow of that, and will never be as good.

Maybe I am trying too hard to recapture what I had done rather than carrying on like it had never happened.

Any of you had this? Have you lost a load of work and worried that when you started again, it won't match what you lost.
