Q

Retrieving data from a damaged file

Is there any way to retrieve data from a damaged file someone was saving to diskette and popped the disk out before the file save completed? When you get the cyclic redundancy error, I believe it to mean it now has no EOF marker. Is that correct?

I've got no good news for you. You can try Norton Utilities on it but I doubt there's anything there. Did you lose the version that was on the hard disk (or in RAM)? I'm guessing yes. I know of no utilities that can help you out with this one.
