Why does the content of my
.tex-file got deleted? This happened the second time. I opened it as usual and there is nothing. Just nothing. Is there a reason why it could have gotten deleted? Fortunately, I have the PDF of the
.tex-file, so that I can restore the document, but why does this happen?
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: I try to provide as much information as I can. I use TeXmaker with XeLaTeX. I was writing a document about linguistics, the output was 71 pages long, but most space was taken up with
subsubchapters for structure. Everything was there, the last time I closed the file, a couple days ago. Also, only this file got deleted, all my other files are intact. Maybe it happened because of the amount of information? Please tell me, where I can help you help me.
EDIT2: I use Windows 10 and the file is stored on my computer, more specific in my
Documents folder. And unfortunately, I didn't have a backup (I suppose one could consider the PDF output file somewhat of a backup), even though it already happened once.
