Hi, Everyone,

We use Openbook 8.0.  I had just completed scanning a 180-page book and had 
saved my file every few pages.  I closed the file, but when I closed Openbook, 
the computer locked up.  I was able to get my speech back and restarted the 
computer; I then ran a disc check and restarted the computer.  I got the 
message that a serious Windows error had occurred.  Everything seemed to run 
okay, but I did send the error report to Microsoft.

However, when I attempted to open the book I had scanned and saved, the prompt 
said that the file was large and would take a few minutes to load.  But when 
the file loaded, there were no pages.  When I closed the file the prompt said 
that I might not be able to save all the attributes of the file with the 
program I was using.  I attempted to then save the blank file in .rtf just to 
see what would happen, and again the file was empty.  I originally created the 
file in .ark pre-8.0. 

Does anyone know if there is a way to recover this file?  Scanning the book 
again is not the end of the world, but I hate wasted time.

I gave all this information in case it might give someone a clue about what I 
might do.
