How can I get back a pages file and its backup if I did not save them to my documents?

Hallo community!
My mac got stock on a website because of a java update so I was forced to shut down the computer using the on-botton. Upon restarting my work on Pages I clicked on the file I was working on so as to open both the file and pages but the file wouldnt open. I checked if I had also saved the file on my documents to try to restart it from there. But this file comes originally from a USB which I dont have at this moment although I could kee on working on this file without the usb. The file is not my documents yet it shows on the last files-list of pages.
I cant open this file anymore, maybe because I did not save it to my files. Although this is strange because I even named another file I worked on along this first document. Enfin, the first file even has a backup according to the list but the backup wont open either. I don't know how to get this file back I am in big trouble If I dont get to open it soon! I hope somebody can help me. Anyone knows a trick or something!?

What version of Pages?
It sounds like it may be damaged.
You do not have to save to Documents.

  • How can I get back next page arrows missing in email?

    The next page arrows in my email section is suddenly missing! How do I get them back? Thank You.

    Sorry about that happening - has happened to me quite often, too.
    Not going to help you now, but I use this extension to automatically "cache" the content of text areas for situations where that may happen.
    The only problem with it is, it save only the latest "state" - no backups beyond what is saved. If something in another tab causes Firefox to crash, you may lose the most recent text that you typed when Firefox was getting ready to crash.

  • I was updating my apps from the App Store when the process quit unexpectedly. Now I can't open the update file nor will my safari launch. How do I get back on to safari and prevent the updates that did download from being installed?

    Ashka, I have tried to "transfer purchases from device" but that is what I am saying that I do not see the app in the "mobile applications" directory after I do that process. I was wondering if anyone else knew of a way to get to the ipa file that is stored on the iPad such as a program that could browse the directories of the iPad of even an app that could do it so I can get and save the actual app in ipa format.

  • I set up new phone (5) as a "new phone instead of backing up from icloud. How can I get back in to use the icloud backup? If I hit "delete account" does that just clear the new phone or does it get rid of my whole icloud account.

    In the set-up process I clicked "set up as new phone" when I should have clicked "back up from icloud". I can't use itunes for the back up as it is not current. Is there a way to get back into setup? If I click "delete accout" in icloud management will it clear just my phone (so I can start over) or will it actually delete my icloud?

    Settings>General, scroll to bottom of screen and tap Reset, choose to delete all data.  Then attach to itunes and choose to perform a restore.  You'll get the option to restore from icloud.

  • I recently updated my iphone and lost all my media and contacts as my computer did not save them how do i get them back

    i recently updated my iphone and lost all my media as my computer did not have enough memory to restore and an error occured. How do i get them back.

    Media and contacts are NOT part of the iPhone backup. Media should already be in your iTunes library and contacts should be in whatever address book or cloud service you were syncing them to. Just re-sync them to the phone.

  • I used the migrator utility to transfer music and picture from my old PC and now I have 2 accounts on my new Mac, how can I get back to one account and still have the music and photos transfered ?

    I used the migrator utility to transfer itunes and photos from my old PC to my new Mac and ended up with 2 accounts on my new computer. How do I transfer the music and photos and only have the 1 account on the new Mac ?

    That's not easy.  The Windows migration tool makes a new user account, and you can't prevent it.
    You may be able to transfer what you want manually, but it's not quick or easy.  See Transferring files from one User Account to another.

  • How can I extract both my mp3 file and its associated .jpg out of itunes

    Hi everybody,
    I'm a DJ and once a month, I like to share a set of mine with my friends. For each set, I also make a dedicated flyer.
    I usually put the recorded set in Itunes, then I add the flyers using the "Illustration" (I'm using a French version) tag.
    Then, I drag the new file (both the .mp3 and .jpg) on a folder on my computer and I can see the flyers and not the normal Mac icon for music file.
    I had always worked, but today I tried to do the same but it doesn't work anymore. In Itunes, my mp3 file contain the flyers, but when I drag it to another folder, the flyer is not there anymore.
    What happened???
    does anybody know a freeware to associate a mp3 with a .jpg?
    Thanks for your help,
    Have a nice day

    I'm not firm with the french iTunes but I'm sure its similar to all other iTunes in the world, except the language of the menus.
    You can include the cover (Illustration) inside the music file. mp3, AAC or Lossless makes no difference.
    To do so go to:
    The song (or songs) by marking it (them) in the main iTunes window. Then right click mouse (or two fingers on touchpad) and choose "Information"
    In the information window go to the tab called "cover"
    Move the wanted picture via drag & drop into this window. The best format for such illustrations are 500 x 500 pixels. If yours are bigger then iTunes will resize it to fit.
    Click on save
    If you will change the cover for more than one file (song) you will be ask "you are sure to change all files"
    Simply press ok
    After that the cover will show up in iTunes and will be exported within the file if you pass the song to others..
    There is no reason to place the cover / Illustration in the Music folder cause iTunes uses for imported covers the "Album Artwork" Folder in the Library.

  • How can I get back the data I had before my itunes restored my new phone?

    I broke my iphone 5s.
    I bought a new iphone 5s.
    I started using the phone right away, without restoring it.
    I just connected the phone to my computer and I allowed my itunes to restore it, unknowingly clearing all the current data on it.
    I have all my OLD old data, but how can I get back all the contacts and photos I put on my new phone before I restored it. I mean it has to be somewhere, right?

    Gorgeous Hello All,
    If anyone of you can please provide me a solution for the following, will help me in plentious and galore.
    Am using Adobe RoboHelp, Version 10 and IE version being 10.
    A hurdle :-
    I have a application which has been developed in ASP .NET, Version 4.0. Help link has been created in this application wherein here the Start up page of index.htm has been linked to be read from the RoboHelp local project folder\!SSL!\Multiscreen_HTML5\desktop. All are working absolutely fine except when
    I login into the above-said application -> click on the Help page -> the index.htm opens with Contents, Index, Glossary -> Am able to successfully perform any task by respective clickings
    -> But I am not able to get back into my application when I click on the IE provided Back button (Alt+Left) -> Any amount of invoking Back button makes the system getting looped into this Start up page of index.htm only -> When I Close Tab (Ctrl + W) or Close ( X ) -> The window session gets closed and I have to repeat all by relogin once again.
    How can I get back into my application aftermath invoking Start up page of index.htm ?
    (I can always get back into the application easily by erasing those parts in the url which refers to this RoboHelp linkages – but this certainly looks non-polished work)

  • I forgot my hidden file manager password,How can i get back my files

    I forgot Hidden file manager password,how can i get back my my data

    If you are able to Get Info on the folder of interest go the the very bottom section Sharing and Permissions.
    You can gain access to this area by clicking on the lock in the lower right corner of the Get Info window.
    Once you have input the admin password for the computer you should be able to edit the permissions on that file/directory.
